party animal magnets

DIY Mini menagerie. Frame. Spray paint, animals, card stock, and hot glue. I just donated so many of these little animals last week! With a new baby in the house, I'd want this in a shadow box to make them less tempting chew toys!

Get some plastic animals at a thrift shop; saw them in half, paint them with spray paint or nail polish, and super glue a magnet to the back! How fun :)

Plastic toy + hot glue gun + lid + spray paint = BIG impact for pennies. Could be done elegantly, too -- maybe glue a plastic doll's tea-cup on a lid and spray it white, fill it with spice tea mix, and have an awesome gift presentation!
