Dollar Store Dinos

Dollar Store Dinosaurs

It’s amazing what you can do with some plastic dinosaur toys and a little bit of spray paint! I found these cute dinos in a toy bin at the dollar store and paid $1 for each of them.

I set them out on newspaper in the yard and gave them a nice coat of silver spray paint.

Now a few of them are sitting happily on my mantle (Spike and Littlefoot the Longneck for those of us born in the 80’s).

My dinos were inspired by these awesome animal fridge magnets from Sugar & Cloth:

Pretty sure I will be making those soon. Who doesn’t need dino fridge magnets?!
