DIY Glitter Plastic Animals

If you follow me on Pinterest (If you don’t where have you been?) you will know I have an obsession with plastic animal DIY’s, there’s a whole board devoted to them. I adore anything that involves plastic animals being made into something cool. So I thought it was about time I share one of my fave plastic animal DIYs. Of course it involves glitter!

Step Two:

Paint your plastic animal (in my case a cute little cow, FYI called Molly) with PVA glue. Be sure to get glue in all over the animal, don’t forget hooves, noses and tails.

Step three:

Use the spoon over the bowl to spoon glitter over the glue covered animal, this means loads less mess and will ensure glitter covers the whole animal.

Step four:

Allow the glue to dry. If you need to touch up any areas or add another layer of glitter and glue do that now.

Once completely dry shake the animal off, over the glitter bowl to get rid of any excess glitter.
