This is such a cool idea to make from cheap plastic animals!
We recommend to put the plastic animals in to a boiling water for a minute or so, it makes it much easier to cut them in half.
Use a white piece of cardstock to adhere the animals to. Put the glass of the frame behind the paper and matte so that you have a hard surface to work on (and it keeps everything nice and tight once you put the frame back together. That way later when you decide gold animal taxidermy is weird you can use the frame again as intended). Simply mark out where you want the tiny friends and used a glue gun to adhere them. Done!

So easy and so stylish.
Some scrap fabric & machine embroidered swirls, thread to match the color of the sweater, and you are ready to go.
We really love Nicole at Sketch42 she makes all kinds of awesome things!
This time she got inspired by the ceramic sculptures she saw at the Elle Decor Showhouse in Miami by Reinaldo Sanguino.
Obviously, she went in a little bit of a different direction there… but the idea of a painted orb somewhere in here house was not letting her rest.
Well she really does know how to make cool things!
It's hard to believe that these votives are made out of faux flowers! They look like they were made out of porcelain
Just get some flowers and dip them into plaster. Pretty need idea and looks amazingly gorgeous!
You will need:
-bucket to mix – best shape is something that is more tall than wide
-wax paper or non-porous surface to lay dipped flowers on
-votive for sizing
-small rubber bands
-small bit of glue – hot glue works great!
-tint* – optional

Appreciate a workspace with a little bit of silliness, and this desk makeover from Kata proves that you can add whimsy to a piece of furniture without sacrificing a clean, modern look. I particularly like the dinosaur doorknobs and patterned top — super cute. Great job, Kata!
Basic Steps that Kata made.
1. I sanded the lacquered surface.
2. I painted one coat of primer paint and two coats of the color.
3. After, I changed the knobs. I used my kids’ dinosaur toys as knobs!
4. Finally, I decoupaged animal print wallpaper on the top.
My advice is to sand the lacquered surface well and always use primer paint! Bold color and funny knobs can change the entire look of the furniture. — Kata
