sparkle pony

a while back, i came across a woman who took toy animals and covered them in monochromatic glitter - i LOVED the look but could never afford the hefty price tag. When i stumbled upon a big bag of (super cheap) plastic animals on a recent shopping trip, i knew a can of metallic gold spray paint and a sunny afternoon would create the perfect addition to our wedding tablescape.

note: jeff's brother kyle will shudder at how terrible my spray painting skills are - i can hear the scolding already :) BUT we now have a little army of golden animals!

all lined up and ready to get sparkled 


  1. This made me laugh out loud! I love this idea.

  2. What an amazing idea!! I love how the elephants look.

    You better be worried, when(if) i get married, i am going to steal all of your ideas haha.
