Approximate cost: $ 2
cardboard (recycle an old box)
spray paint (optional)
heavy duty glue - One of the "cooler" glue guns will not cut it. I know from experience. Use a scorching hot glue gun or Gorilla glue.
Markers or craft paper

- For a more original horse, don't paint him at all... graffiti him! (Like this cow. These artistic cows are all over Houston! They are a part of the "Cow Parade". Why not create your own "horse parade" by designing these with a few friends!)
- Make a mane out of yarn. Just sandwich strands of yarn along his neck in between the two layers when you're ready to glue the two heads together.
- Add some patchwork to your horse. Glue a few small squares of fabric on his neck to give him a well-worn look.
