Some time ago (actually months ago.....) I started this DIY. Somewhere in winter, I found a photo of an Anthropologie trinket dish. Silly me forgot to pin it, but in my mind it was white, had polkadots, and involved an animal figurine. I DO remember a very scary price tag. I don't like scary price tags, but I do like recreating things I like, low budget style! I got a dinosaur figurine at the toy store back in january, started painting away and for some reason the pink dino ended up in a closet and stayed there. I guess the dinosaur wasn't a big fan of winter (just like me) and decided to go into hibernation mode..... It resurfaced again a week ago.
What you'll need:
- an animal figurine
- paint (or spray paint)
- a plate
- a paint brush
- a nail
Cover your workspace with an old newspaper and start painting away. This dino apparantly wasn't a big fan of the colour pink, and needed multiple layers to go from green to pink. Maybe spray painting would have been the better option, but I got this paint a long time ago and it needed to be used!
After the painting, and when the dino is all nice and dried up, glue it's feet to your plate. Give it some time to dry.
Try out some different sized nails on a scrap piece of paper, to see which size of polka dots you like most. And surround the little dude (or dudette) with dots.
Let it dry, et voila!
