  5. Spray paint. (The house shapes were added prior to painting.)
  6. Added embellishments (optional). I used these house shapes covered with cardstock paper and paper flowers. The cardstock and the paper flowers were added after the bookends, including the house shapes, were spray painted.
  7. Ready to gift or use yourself.
