A while back I found some wooden animals at Target in the craft section. And by a while I’m pretty sure I mean a couple years because they don’t seem to sell them anymore. I intended to use them to make string art (you know, the kind where you hammer nails in all around and then wrap it with string), but I never got around to it and then lost interest in that idea.
A month or so ago I pulled them out again, intending to finally do something with them. My goal this year is going to be using up the canvases, yarn, and these type of wooden things I have to make space in my shelves. I was watching some of the progress videos from the Zenspire Designs Instagram and realized these little guys would be the perfect canvas for some doodling.
I started with one gorilla, to see if I liked how it looked, then decided to make the other gorilla face the opposite direction so they could look at each other. Or away from each other, if you want.
All three of these guys are available on my Etsy shop here. They would make an adorable addition to any nursery, playroom, or any animal lover’s book shelf.
