I've been meaning to DIY some gold animals for quite some time after spotting them in several stylish settings (see pictures above). They're cute and playful and I thought it'd be fun to dot a couple around my bookshelf and coffee table or maybe even re-create the animal-topped mason jars. After my Kate Spade Canvas DIY I had some gold spray paint left over, so it was just a simple case of finding the plastic animals and getting a bit of free time.
I opted for a bucket of mixed 'safari' animals for mine, but of course, you could choose something different like dinosaurs or farm animals. Or, go for one larger sized animal if you want a bigger visual impact. Once I had the animals I simply laid them out flat on newspaper, sprayed one side of them, waited for them to dry and then did the other. As easy as that! I'm really pleased with how they've turned out and the effect is just what I wanted. I have four of them in my living room and even though I have another 12 sat in their bucket, I think they're best staying there for now. I'm going for playful chic decor after all, not a zoo.
