Playing with a Purpose: Altering a Pull Toy »
InstructionsThis is a super fast, easy project with tons of possibilities. If you don't have a pull toy, don't worry; you can use any toy - new, old, or anywhere in between.
For example, I'd love to find an old wooden fire or dump truck truck and put a metal butter dish in the back.
Type of item: Functional
Style: Cute, Funky, Whimsical
A $1 turtle pull toy I picked up at Michaels, sanding block, bottle caps, 1" circle punch, craft paints, magnets, bowl / plate.
What was your inspiration?
I wanted a simple, super-cute project that would allow me to alter toys, because I see fun old toys every time I go to the flea market, and I can't justify buying them unless I have something I know I can do with them. ;)
What are you most proud of?
Even though this is incredibly easy to make, I think it's definitely cute enough to be a fun hostess gift. It's also cheap enough that you could have one at each place as a snack bowl or an ice cream dish at a kid's party.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Strong magnets are the key here. Any magnet will allow you to swap out a bowl for a plate, as well as to carry the bowl to the sink for washing, but only STRONG magnets will keep the bowl from slipping off if bumped.
