diy project no. 003: party animals!

I came across this diy post for candle holders on the sweetest occasion and will be definitely making these for the next birthday party we host.  This is such a great idea, inexpensive to make and they will look amazing on cupcakes!

plastic animals
plastic candle holders
drill with 1/8″ drill bit
gold spray paint (or any color that you like - hot pink, perhaps?)

Hold the animal with the pliers and drill a hole straight down, being careful not to pop out the other side. The hole just has to be deep enough for the holder to fit.

Spray paint the animals in a few light coats, rotating them to cover all sides. Note: I used gold (w/o primer) and it worked fine for both the nicer plastic animals and the dollar store ones. I wanted a pop of color but some of the animals didn’t take to regular spray paint, be sure to use a plastic spray paint or a primer for plastic and always test one first. You can also spray paint the candle holders to match.

Marvel at your craftacularness.
