I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but it’s a regular ol’ animal invasion on the DIY front! Yes, 2011 is the year plastic animals finally got their due. From dinosaur planters to, um, jungle-themed ‘derriere’ magnets, we’ve rounded up a few of our favorite plastic animal projects. Enjoy!
No “butts” about it, these animal magnets from Steph Mantis are pure silliness… and totally awesome.
I love the dual-purpose action of this dino gift topper-turned-necklace idea from Papernstitch!
After you’ve made those “butt magnets” save the heads and turn ’em into wall hooks!
These dinosaur planters from Plaid Pigeon might be my favorite plastic animal idea of them all–look how perfect they are for succulents!
And finally, check out how Mad In Crafts turned her dollar store animals into bookends!
So Curbliers, can you think of any other clever uses for plastic animal toys? I’ve got plans to add some DIY glitter deer to my Christmas decor this year!
