I’ve always loved Jurassic Park. My brother was obsessed with it when we were kids and I always get that sense of nostalgia when I watch it. So I was excited when they announced Jurassic World…. not to mention Chris Pratt, need I say more. I have been seeing toy dinosaurs everywhere since the movie was announced. So I picked this guy up at CVS for my desk at work. I also have a some succulents and a cactus at my desk and then it hit me why don’t I make this dinosaur into an airplant holder. So on Friday T Rex went into my purse and travelled home for a bit of cosmetic surgery. 


What you’ll need

  • Hollow Toy Dinosaur (I got mine at CVS)
  • Air Plant
  • Drill
  • Scissors

The rubber of the dinosaur was pretty thick. So I grabbed my drill and drill bit to puncture the rubber. You may need to apply a bit of pressure to break through. 

Now that the “skin” is punctured take a pair of household scissors and begin to cut a circle. Cut small areas at a time until you have a circle big enough for your air plant.

Don’t worry about it being perfect the air plant should cover the edges.

And its as simple as that. It only took me about 5 minutes & less than $5 and I had a T Rex air plant holder / planter.

  1. What a great idea for a Jurassic theme party! Like a kids birthday party, or movie premiere party.
