Dinosaur Hooks

Have you all wondered if I have finished (forgot) the boy room makeover? Yell, it's not done yet. It's still a work in progress, just a few more details until I show you the big reveal. If you have missed the posts so far you can see them here, here, here, here, here, here, here and here.

I have to tell you that this project that I am about to show you, the idea came from my fifteen year old daughter. . . DINOSAUR HOOKS!!!! Brilliant!!

I started out with toy dinosaurs. Looked for the ones that had a "hook" like head and body. I bought them at Wal-Mart for $1.00 a piece.

Hubby took each dinosaur and cut it in half.
Hubby then traced the body onto a piece of wood to cut and put inside the dinosaur so we would have a way for the dinosaur adhere to the base. The base hubby made by cutting a square piece of wood and routered the edges.
I glued each piece of wood to the base piece and then painted the base.
We then took each dinosaur and put onto the small wood piece and nailed the dinosaur to the inside piece of wood and base.

They are now ready to hang on the wall.

    How did you nail the dino to the wooden circle pieces? Probably simple, but can't figure it out.

  9. I used a nail gun to nail the dino to the wooden circle.

  10. This is so awesome!!I've been looking for dinosaur hooks worthy of my sons room for over a year. My son has the exact same dino toys and I love to make crafts.After seeing this I asked myself why didn't I think of that!

  11. How did you nail them on there without the nails showing, did you do it from the top or bottom?
