stacked toy decoration

I don’t know about you but every time I do a propper tidy up I find about a billion tiny toys that don’t seem to have a home. Instead of throwing them out though I separate them out into wood or plastic and keep them in bags for future projects that I haven’t thought up yet.

This is one of those projects that made me glad I didnt chuck them away. Its pretty simple really. Gather, stack, glue and paint could be the instructions but for the sake of showing lots of lovely pictures I present you the following tutorial.


What you need:

  • A bunch of old old toys. We used blocks, corks, buttons and beads and odds and ends.

  • Hot glue (regular glue would work with a lot of patience)

  • Cord or string

  • Paint

  • Paint pens (optional but great)

  • Varnish
