Mike & I are working on a project for our Entry that has been in the back of our minds for a long time, and I can’t wait to show it you. (UPDATE: Go here to see how we used the Animal Push Pins)

However, for now, I’ll just share these fun little animal push pins which will be part of that bigger DIY project.
These Arctic Animal Push Pins are no longer for sale on Anthropologie, but I believe they were retailing for about $12. Not terribly pricey, but it only included 5 push pins — if I started purchasing large quantities that could get expensive quickly.
I found these toy animals at Seek and Find Treasures in Louisville. I got 2 bags of animals at $1.50 each and then got to work on this simple Knock-Off.
They each received a couple coats of Flat White spray paint.
They were looking much better, but I added a coat of Gloss Clear spray paint to give them a “shiny-ness” like the ceramic push pins from Anthropologie.
