Repurpose Plastic Animals into Pushpins

If you have kids, you have undoubtedly acquired a set of little plastic animals somewhere along the way. Lora from Craftivity Designs shares a great project for upcycling the toys into fun pushpins that would add pizzazz to any corkboard. Lora spray painted her animals a crisp white, but I also think they’d be a great way to incorporate a pop of color into a space. It makes you look at your kids’ toys in a whole new light when you envision them with a coat of spray paint {giggle}!

Lora was inspired by the Arctic Animal Pushpins that are no longer available from Anthropologie.
