Since I apparently have a new found love for them, I thought I would come up with a project where I could use them for more than just birthday candles.
And hence, decided to make them into these DIY Party Animal Magnets.
Side note: For the safety of your reputation, never announce over the phone that you are “cutting up animals”, it gets awkward until you thoroughly explain yourself…
Materials & Tools Needed To Make DIY Party Animal Magnets
- Plastic animals — $1 each at the dollar store
- Super glue
- Plastic/bottle caps
- Spray paint
- Magnet circles
How To Make DIY Party Animal Magnets
1 — Cut the plastic animals in half with scissors, it’s surprisingly easy.
2 — Insert the caps into the open end of the animals.
3 — Spray paint them the color of your choice.
4 — Super glue the magnet to the back, and be sure to push in the cap far enough to for the magnet to be flush with the animal, I learned this by trial and error.
What To Use In Case Bottle Caps Don’t Fit Into Your Plastic Animal
