Late in the week before last,
I was perusing blogs in my Google Reader and found
Lovely Indeed.

She made these gorgeous birthday candle holders
out of dollar store animals and
I was hooked!

So, of course, with our oldest daughter Robynn's 30th Birthday
coming soon (last week),
I absolutely had to make a hippo for her....
because she LOVES hippos!
Robynn's Hippo
The hippo was a hit!
I saw her face light up when she saw it!
(she's a kid at heart!)

These little critters are so simple to make and Chelsea over at Lovely Indeed
gives fabulous instructions HERE on How To!
I made a larger hippo too
(because I wasn't sure how big the cake would be!...proportions and all you know!)
as well as a horse and a stork!
Robynn is pregnant (Yay!), so I'm just getting ready for the celebration!

Here's the rest of the animals I made!  So fun!
You could do just about anything with this idea and some spraypaint!

Isn't this a fun easy craft?
Wish I'd thought of it first!  But, I'm glad Chelsea posted it for all of us!
Share the Love!

You got my wheels turning now Wendy. Love this simple way of personalizing your decorations and without spending much!
