I just can’t quit the plastic animal DIYs- I cannot resist how cute they are and easy to makeover. These plastic animal ornaments are made even easier by using a Sharpie, another DIY favorite of mine!

How To Make Sharpie Designed Plastic Animal Ornaments
The plastic animals before (with some Sharpie doodles :):
I chose medium sized animals and two large ones. The small plastic animals work just fine but I wanted bigger ornaments for the tree.
Drill a small hole in top of plastic animal and screw in an eyehook.
Spray paint all animals white (a paint & primer spray paint mix works best)
Design your animals using a Sharpie marker!
I chose to stick with the Gold Metallic Sharpie for my doodles (seeing as gold metallic is my current obsession). I did “realistic” lines on the giraffe and tiger.
For the rest of the animals, I went with polka dots and stars!
I purchased the Assorted ($6), Metallics (comes with 2 Silver, Bronze & Gold) for only $3.39 and Neon-at only $5- which I am so excited to get my hands on for some spring DIYs!!
|My other favorite 🙂
I think this elephant prefers a forest of garland than the harsh jungle!
|The tiger looks a bit angry for Christmastime…
I will be giving these out at an ornament exchange party- don’t you just love Christmastime?
