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!

I do have a pink Christmas tree, but it is tiny & only in my office…

How To Make Sharpie Designed Plastic Animal Ornaments

Sharpie Markers

Plastic animals

Eye hooks
Spray paint
Ornament hooks

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!

As all of us Sharpie addicts know, they come in soooooo many colors.  Staples has a great sale on the 12 pack of Assorted Sharpies- only $6.00, a smoking deal and I cannot wait to Sharpie all the things…

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?
