Dinosaur Tree!

Hi Internet, how were your holidays? I don’t really care so much what you celebrate, but I hope you do celebrate something so you can make time to get together with your family and loved ones.

My Christmas was pretty awesome, and I used it as an excuse to bring glitter into the house (literally), despite Tawyna’s loathing of it. She swears that it multiplies and gets everywhere and that you can never get rid of it, like fleas. Now, I’m not claiming that it’s not true… but I don’t see it as such a negative.

You know what else is really cool? Dinosaurs.

Put them together and you get…
Glitter Dinosaur Tree Ornaments

Nothing shows Christmas spirit like sparkly dinosaurs hanging from your Christmas tree!  They were such a hit that different relatives kept requesting to take one home for their own tree.  The herd may have dwindled, but the individuals are staking out new territory.

The recipe for fab dinosaurs is pretty simple.

Step 1: Acquire dinosaurs from dollar store
Step 2: Acquire glitter (the finer the better)
Step 3: Paint a thin layer of glue on dinos.
Step 4: Give them a glitter shower (or bath, if you have enough glitter, which would probably make the process a lot faster)
Step 5: After drying, rinse (tap/shake) and repeat until fully covered in glitter
Step 6: Use a hot glue gun to attach an ornament hook (or why not use a paper clip?)

The cats absolutely loved having a tree in the house too, they were our first presents under the tree.
