I’ve always loved the industrial look of wood or metal orbs. We have one out on the coffee table that’s made of metal, but it’s not a bookend. But even one picked up at Target can come with a price tag that is a little steep for such a simple piece.
Wooden embroidery hoops on the other hand are rather inexpensive. These embroidery hoop orbs are quite easy to make. I know some of you are hand embroiderers like I am, so this would be a fun addition to a craft room or for any crafters home decor.
This looks really cool on a bookshelf for a great bookend! It’s a great look for modern decor and minimalists, although it would look awesome in any decor.
If you’re trying to think of a great housewarming gift, this couldn’t be a more unique gift, and I’m sure that it will certainly surprise your recipient! I know that I would be really excited about receiving a gift like this one!
- 2 wood embroidery hoops (my local craft store had them from just over a dollar)
