I don’t think I’ll ever tire of the golden animal trend. Look at them! Can you blame me? These DIY animal memo holders are the perfect quirky, yet professional gift. I made them as thank you’s to take with me as I head to New York again this week, and I’m so excited to gift them!
They’d also make for cute hostess gifts or stocker stuffers for those of you thinking ahead! Here’s how–
I’ve been trying to
- Plastic animal
- Alligator clip
- 1/8 inch dowel rod
- Super glue
- Drill and 1/8 drill bit
- Spray paint (I used primer, paint, and gloss)
First, drill a hole into the top of your animal, then squirt a little drop of super glue in the hole and insert the dowel rod. The rod should fit snug, if it doesn’t, your drill bit is too big.
Next, super glue an alligator clip to the tip of the dowel rod making sure to squeeze the edges of the clip tight around the rod.
If you’re animal has a shiny finish, it’s best to used spray primer before painting your color of choice. If it’s not, go ahead and spray paint it and then it seal it with a glossy finish if you’d like. Now just add a memo, and you’re done!
