Hello boys! They are tiny ceramic piggy banks. One is a lion and I’m pretty sure that other one is a zebra, but I’m gonna pretend he’s a pony. I have a pretty strict policy of not buying random stuff. I like to only buy things I have a specific and immediate use for…so I passed them by even though I was in love.
But LUCKILY I thought of two reasons to head back the very next day:
Reason #1: That zebra/pony was in desparate need of metallic pants.
Reason #2: I remembered some gifts that were overdue.
I had this metallic enamel paint on hand, and I kind of like what happened:
So I’m calling this a Quickie DIY because it hardly constitutes as a project! However, they sell plain white ceramic dudes like this at all the big box craft stores, and I’m sure you could paint some pants on friends you find at the thrift store.
Here are my buddies all gussied up:
I think they make a pretty cute little gift! But maybe I’ve been blinded by all the flash on that zebra’s pants…what do you think?
