Recently Anya’s had loads of birthday party invites; there has practically been a party every weekend for a few weeks now. I’m a big fan of giving books to kids when I don’t know them well enough to know their interests so that has been my gift of choice. But I’m always looking for different ways to wrap these gifts so when I came across these plywood elephants I thought they would make really cute gift tags.
I found these elephants on ebay but I’m sure you’ll get them in any craft shop. I tried poster paints and acrylic paints and both worked well. I chose to decorate the elephants with polka dots as I love dots but you can paint any design you like. Apart from painting these elephants, you can also decorate them with stickers, washi tape, ribbon or whatever else you have at home. Anya made her own elephants and really enjoyed doing this.
This is such an easy and fun DIY but ends up looking really pretty. And these elephants can also be put to a lot of other uses like making a garland or a baby mobile or decorating and personalising a notebook.
