Awesome Dinosaur Planter

I have to admit that I love yard sales, thrift stores and curb finds, but what DIY-er doesn't right? I found a bunch of artificial plants being put on the curb so I did the responsible thing and brought them home.
I decided to use my "fake" succulents but real plants would be great in this planter. Now all I needed was to search my kids room to find an old dinosaur that they wouldn't miss. Of course, I had to do it in secret because although they never play with something, if they see me touch it then it automatically becomes their favorite toy.
For this project you will need:
Toy dinosaur
A tool to cut through the plastic ( I used a box cutter)
Spray paint
Rocks or dirt
Cut a hole in the back of the dinosaur.
Spray paint it and let dry. Then fill it with rocks or dirt.
Add your succulents and admire.

    What kind of spray paint did you use? My spray paint made the dinos sticky--the rubber never dried properly!!
