I've seen quite a few plastic animal crafts out there, and I thought, I want to make something with them too! But of course, I had to add Mod Podge to the project . . . and I wanted to anyway. You see, I glittered my plastic animal. As I was creating this project, I realized that this would make such a fun gift box. Or, if you like crazy things on your desk like I do, this would make for interesting organization.
Gather These Supplies
- Paper mache box
- Plastic animal
- Mod Podge Matte
- FolkArt paint in several colors – make sure one of the paint colors matches your glitter
- Fine glitter
- Painter's tape or Stencil tape
- Craft glue
After painting my plastic animal white, I painted her (him?) with a color to match my glitter. Otherwise you can see the background through the fine glitter, and that just wasn't going to work for me.
Once the outside is completely dry, use stencil tape to section off a stripe. I didn't measure (I just eyeballed) but you can if you want to.
Then use the craft glue to secure the plastic animal to the top.
