• Plastic dinosaurs
  • Electric drill with drill bits
  • A sharp craft knife
  • A pen
  • Newspaper
  • White spray paint
  • Gold nail varnish (or paint)
  • Small plant


  1. Take your dinosaur and with the pen mark out an area on their back big enough to hold the small plant.
  2. Drill along the inside edge of the drawn line, removing as much plastic as possible. Careful not to drill through the bottom of the dinosaur!
  3. One you've removed as much as possible, use the craft knife to clear our the hole even more.
  4. Lay out the newspaper and spray the whole dinosaur white from a distance of 30cm to ensure you get good paint coverage. Wait to dry and repeat until whole dinosaur is white. Let dry.
  5. Taking the gold paint, carefully paint the head and other parts of the dinosaur. Let dry and repeat for good coverage.
  6. One dry, take your plant and fit in to the hole. Enjoy!
