Want to make your own DIY Party Animal Magnets for your fridge or whiteboard? Here’s how you can easily do so!
Once upon a time, I featured a post from Hank + Hunt for her DIY animal candle holders.
I blame that post for ooh’ing and ahh’ing over plastic animals every time I see them now. (Nerd alert!)
There’s no way I’ll ever tire of the animal trend. Would you blame me if I showed you these DIY Animal Memo Holders too?
Since I apparently have a newfound 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.
You’ll also love these adorable animal magnets for your little girl’s bedroom.
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 and Tools Needed to Make DIY Party Animal Magnets
Plastic animals — We found ours for $1 each at the dollar store.
How to Make DIY Party Animal Magnets
Step 1 — Cut the plastic animals in half with scissors (it’s surprisingly easy).
Step 2 — Insert the caps into the open end of the animals.
Step 3 — Spray paint them the color of your choice.
Step 4 — Super glue the magnet to the back, and be sure to push in the cap far enough for the magnet to be flush with the animal, I learned this by trial and error.
