We love a good project don't you? This one involves making fun animals to hang on the wall from just a milk jug and masking tape... ok and maybe a little paper mache and some old magazines! You could outfit your playroom with an entire safari!

Mandi over at Vintage Revivals is always drumming up a project that can be done for very little money and only a day's worth of effort. This one involves free hanging a rhino which was then attached to a board covered with tiled mirror.

Although you might be thinking to yourself, "I could never make a rhino without a template of some sort" Mandi thought the same thing. She started with the horns and just kept going from there. Soon an unruly blob turned into thus fun animal that was later covered in newsprint. It came alive when it received an eye and yours will too!

Make sure to swing by Vintage Revivals to check out the full tutorial and gain confidence that this is a doable project. (And then let us know in the comments what you plan on making!)
