  • How to make a Christmas decoration. Diy Plastic Animal Decorations  - Step 1
    Step 1

    What you need:

    plastic animals
    golden paint and paintbrush (or the easier spray paint)
    headpins
    large needle that’s not vital in your crafts
    golden ribbon

    Step 2

    I heated a needle and used it to pierce the plastic animal. After multiple use, it got stuck in an animal :) So be quick with it, and of course, extra careful. The headpin goes though that hole, with the pin at the “belly area”. I bended a loop at the other end, and then painted the entire thing gold. At the time, I didn’t have spray paint, which would have made it so much easier and would’ve covered the whole surface better and evenly. However, I kind of like the faded hue that turned out.

    I let the toys dry completely, then I passed a piece of golden ribbon through the loop and tied the ends in a bow.

    This is how the animals will hang in the tree or wherever else you want. For now, I don’t have a tree, so I hung them to an apartment plant. They need to look pretty, too!
