It’s not flea market season quite yet, but sometimes I love to make things with my beloved thrift scores in mind… but thrifting isn’t for everyone so 100% of the items from this project were purchased brand new at JOANN. In other words, you can get that ‘found treasure’ look without… hunting. Flea market cheating!
I LOVE this makeover. Not as much as I love Dawson Leery, but it was super easy and makes SUCH a difference so yeah… I love it a lot. I picked up a handful of statues from thrift stores and Facebook marketplace… anywhere I could find them for under $10. Here’s my secret weapon: Plutonium Spray Paint.
My kids have a few favorite toys: markers and crayons, rubber ducks and… our bin FILLED with little miniature plastic animals and figures. These Safari Toobs are favorites for any event and over the years we’ve acquired a LOT of mini alligators and cows and fairies and astronauts. So many themes. So many tiny plastic creatures to play with. So why not CRAFT with them?!
