All gold everything, the perfect touch to your tablescape.
Gold animals are the perfect addition to any event, big or small. Whether you're in need of place cards for your wedding, a small get together, decor around your house, or a tiny keepsake for a baby shower, we've got you covered.
Check out the DIY that we helped create for Alyssa and Miguel's dreamy fairy tale cottage wedding.
S U P P L I E S
- Small Plastic Animal Figurines (available at Amazon, Target or Party City)
- Gold Metallic Spray Paint (We used Krylon; available at Amazon, Michaels or your local hardware store)
- Seating Cards
- Hole or Paper Punch
- String or Ribbon
- Newspaper or Cardboard
C R E A T E a W O R K S P A C E
- It's best to work outdoors or in an area that is well ventilated, so you aren't breathing in the fumes from the spray paint
- Lay out your newspaper or cardboard to create a work surface
P A I N T your A N I M A L S
- Place your animals on the work surface, about an inch or two apart
- Spray the top and sides with an even coat of your gold spray paint (make sure to read the directions on the spray can for safety and usage)
- Once they're dry (about 15-20 seconds to dry), rotate them and repeat the process until the animals are evenly coated
A T T A C H the P L A C E C A R D S
- Alyssa picked up calligraphy before the wedding, so she already had name cards ready for us to attach to the painted animals.
- If you need to create your own; you can easily buy pre-cut tags at Michaels or purchase a lever punch in the shape of a tag and cut out your own!
- Write the names of each guest on your tags
- Hole punch a corner of each name card (if a hole isn't already provided - depends on your tags)
- Take a 3-4 inch piece of string and loop it through the name card
- Attach the name card to the neck of the gold animal with a double knot or a bow
Set the table and let your guests find their way to their inner party animal!
