And just for kicks, I thought I’d show you the owl… I had to drill sort of an inappropriate hole!!! Watch out for gold owl pellets!
Anyhow, where was I before I was distracted by golden poop?
6. Using heavy duty scissors or plant trimmers, cut your wooden skewers to your desired lengths.
7. Using your hot glue gun, place a dot of hot glue in the hole you made in your animal.
9. Stick them in plants and admire their quirkiness. The two below are my favorites!
10. Show them to your daughter who says “Wow, Mommy! You made those with brass animals!” Think to yourself, “Way to go, Rust-Oleum, with the best quality metallic spray paint ever. You make plastic look like real metal.”
I just love this giraffe!
And behold…. the owl with the precious golden pellets. Me wants the precious!
I have a bunch more animals that I painted gold that were slightly too small for this project, so I am thinking of making photo holders, much like the horse place card holders I made. Remember these guys?
What do you think? Can you picture them on a mantle or shelf holding old photos?
Oh, and I think I should rename the blog something like “Paint All the Things Gold”. I can’t get enough. Midas has nothing on me.
I also would love to find some bigger animals to create some awesome planters like my friend Caitlin….
Isn’t this the coolest?
Have a great day! I am off to decimate some more plastic animals all in the name of style!
