Decorating a little one's room can be so much fun! And can be so expensive! But it doesn't have to be!

I took a look around and a Teddy Bear Bookend can cost you as much as $98.00 each!

You can make your own matching stuffed toy book-ends out of your own adorable stuffed animals.

Simply undo the back of your stuffed toy, take out some of the stuffing and fill with marbles for weight. Re-sew the back opening by hand.

To prevent sliding, glue a non-slip rubber /silicone mesh pad on the bottom of the stuffed toy.

This works great for matching the decor in your baby's room.
