Need a new project? We make it easy to design your very own animal head. You draw the design and the artisans of Haiti-based Caribbean Craft will hand paint it on the animal shape of your choice. Whether you hang it in a playroom, living room or home office, it's the perfect creative escape for little and big kids alike.

  • Step 1: Click to download the PDF of the animal shape you want to color in: Elephant, Giraffe, Zebra or Lion.
