Here's what you will need for this wild wall art idea:

  • plastic animals (I bought a package of 4 plastic animals from the Dollar Store)
  • a small canvas (I used a 10 x 10 inch canvas)
  • E6000 glue or hot glue
  • heat gun or utility knife
  • acrylic paints and / or spray paint
  • paint brush
  • painter's tape

Step 2: Paint Canvas

To start, with your painter's tape, tape off 4 squares, and fill each one with a different color.

Step 3: Prep Animals

Now, take your plastic animals and use a heat knife or utility knife to cut them in half. You will only need the parts with the heads. Then, paint each one a different color and let dry. You can use regular paint or spray paint for better coverage.

Step 4: Glue on Animals

Then, use E600 glue to attach each animal into a different square and let dry completely.

Step 5: Hang and Enjoy!

Then, once it's dry hang it up on your walls and enjoy!

For my animals, I used a lion, an elephant, a horse, and a rhino.
