So, I came across this post on Pinterest, and loved the idea.
After some searching, I found that the original is from the lovely folks at Plaid Pigeon, I believe, so if you are gung-ho about purchasing one of these, take a look in their shop! Theirs include real plants, more color options, and more dinosaur (and even animal) options. Their store is lovely, so if you’d like to buy one, please visit them at Plaid Pigeon.
But now, the problem was that I couldn’t afford the cute planter on my own, but still wanted one.
For a DIY version, my instructions are below.
If you’d like to put in a real succulent, instead of the fake one I used, all you’ll need to do is follow the alterations mentioned below, as well!
For a REAL plant, please replace the Faux Succulent with a real succulent plant, along with gathering some small rocks, and some good cacti/succulent soil.
First step is to cut a hole in the top of your dino. I used a faux plant, so my hole could be really small.
For a real plant, make sure you cut out a large, even hole out of the back of your dino, and also cut a small hole in each foot (for drainage).
Next step is to paint that sucker. I used a cute blue. You can also spray a coat of clear spray paint or enamel when finished for protection.
For a real plant, make sure you don’t get paint inside the Dino.
You’re all set!
