10 gilded animal toy diys pop shop america

As a mini freebie in our Craft in Style Subscription Boxes (January 2019) we included Mini Dinosaur Toys!

The pair perfectly with these Gilded Dinosaur Terrarium Planters that were the feature of the January 2019 Box. And we have a few other dino surprises in the box that we haven’t announced yet. Only our subscribers know what’s inside!

Other than using them for terrariums, there are lots of other DIYs you can make with mini animal toys. Here are some of my favorites! When making these Gilded Animal DIY’s, all you need to do is coat them in the gilding twice. If you want to give the metallic sheen a little pop, first paint the animals with a layer of white heavy bodied acrylic paint. It brightens the gilding.
