Violet & Rose Spotted Hungry Hippo

This was one of the ‘silly-but-fun’ Christmas pressies I gave to my sister this year. I saw this idea on Pinterest and fancied giving it a go. I bought a bag of cheap plastic zoo animals (the plantage was included in the pack) and used rose & violet acrylic paints for the lid and hippo and then superglued the bits to the lid. The jar (which used to have Tesco’s peanut butter in it) was filled with one of my sister’s favourite sweeties of choice – violet and rose cremes. RAAAR!

    Presents that are cute and sweet to eat are the very best. This definitely fits both.
