Be like a giraffe, It’s an incredibly difficult thing to bring a giraffe down.
You know me, surfing Pinterest and Anthropologie. Love them both (incredible addicting) and saw this adorable cutesy wootsy giraffe trinket dish
I was like,
“I can make that!”
And so I did.
Want to make one too? Let me show you how:
Oh yeah! And check out their other trinket dishes:
What you need:
- Toy Giraffe Baby This Hobby Lobby One for 5.99
- Cloud Clay for 3.50
- White Paint
- Gold Paint
- Paint Brushes
Paint your little giraffe white. Get ready to have paint all over your hands! :D
Let it completely dry and add another layer if need be
Give him gold chickenpox: Take a Q-tip, dip it in the gold paint and “dot” away! I did it like Anthropologie, and did not touch his head. It will be easier with more paint on the Q-tip, so you only have to touch it lightly.
Ready for the cloud clay? I was actually quite pleased with this stuff. It was soooo soft I wanted to curl up and use it as a pillow or eat it…yeah…I kinda had the urge to eat it! HA! It was just so soft (not that I eat random soft things or anything :)
Okay Okay, here we go…
Form a handful of the clay into a dish shape. Smooth out the edges until you get your desired shape. Make sure the wee giraffe baby fits in it nicely.
When it dries, paint a gold line around the perimeter. The clay takes about 24 hours to dry according to the package, but mine dried in about a week (thickness maybe)
Using super glue, glue the baby’s four feet down (baby giraffe that is)
Let dry and TA-DA!
You are a knock-off master!
