I know it’s not Monday… but I really want to keep my Make Something Monday’s going and hopefully this will give me the push to be consistent.
So over the weekend… and through the week… I made the coolest jewelry holder EVER!
It’s super easy and the end result is amazing!
So give it a try. Here we go:
Step One: Gather up your supplies:
*note* – I initially wanted to wallpaper the wooden base but decided mid-project to add some color. Switched it up. *
- Dinosaurs from DollarTree
- A wooden board – craft store- premade although you could cut one yourself.
- Paint – I choose Gold Spray paint for the plastic dinos and a teal paint for the base.
- Glue – I use E6000..it’s the best! But really toxic- there is a giant warning on the tube- but it’s REEEAALLLY good. Just keep away from kids and air the room out after.
- Knife – To cut the dinos in half.
- Brush – to brush on the glue
Step 2: Cut the dinos in half..right on the seam. I used a small pairing knife. use a sawing motion when cutting the seam.
Step 3: Spray paint your dinos any color you want. Spray paint works best..it’s even and sticks to plastic really well. I did this outside in the snow (actually I made Matt do it. It’s waaaay too cold in NY these days)
Step 4: Paint the wooden base any color you want.
Step 5: Wait for paint to dry.
Step 6: Use your E6000 glue to glue your dino heads to the board. I used a measuring tape to measure my dinos and get them evenly spaced out.
Step 7: Hang some jewels on it and you are done!
