Gold Animal Stampede

I am decorating a table for this weekend's Emerald Ball and I decided to try one of my favorite Pinterest ideas: spray painting plastic animals! You all know how much fun I've had spraying painting things gold and that fun continued tonight. After work I ran by the Dollar Tree to find some plastic animals. Luckily, I found a few! Major score at only a $1 each. I unfortunately couldn't find the elephant at mine, but I ended up finding one at Michael's and was able to use a 40% off coupon to make it $4. They have a really wide variety of plastic animals and figurines if you are needing something specific.

All you need for this project is your plastic animals, gold spray paint and your protective gear (paint clothes, rubber gloves, plastic sheet, etc.)

This project turns a plastic toy animal into a classy fun home accessory in only two minutes!

Rust-Oleum Metallic Gold is the best gold spray paint!

I can't wait to use them on the table this weekend and I will post pictures of everything together. I'm then excited to use these beauties in my house - randomly set them around for fun!

Here are some fun ideas I spotted on Etsy for golden figurines...

Make them into name place cards!

Love the idea of making them pushpins!
Now get out there and start spraying things gold!

Lots of Love,


I love hearing your thoughts & ideas!
