I’m sure I’m not the only one here who had a thing for dinosaurs as a kid. My favorites were the plesiosaur and the duckbill.

This latent dino-love is, I’m sure, the reason I’m drawn to every single dinocraft project I find. They all call to me.

I dig other plastic animals, too — but couldn’t this rack go for less ram, more prehistoric carnviore?

Nice. I’m liking this new “what can I stick to a lamp base” trend. I see there’s another one in the background, too. I like how these lamp bases go abstract from a distance.

Comments on 8 ways to express dinosaur appreciation in your home

  1. My husband wants a couple of the schleich dinosaurs for our mantle. I am so down with that! Now to rustle up $80 odd bucks (aus) for each… Yeh, I think that this will be a birthday present.

  2. Ahhhhhhhhhhhh! These are all AMAZING ideas. Amazing. This also gives me some great ideas for all the tiny plastic zoo animals that I bought for our wedding.

    I just wish I didn’t anthropomorphize inanimate objects so much. It would be awfully hard for me to cut one in half. Silly, I know.

  3. I know it’s not home decor, but it is a grown-up dinosaur item that I recently bought and am kind of excited to start using: https://www.bradfordexchangechecks.com/products/1800673001-.html?BECT_CODE=15346XTV&cm_ven=GPS&cm_cat=Google%7CProductAds&cm_pla=Search%7CProduct%20Ads&cm_ite=1800673001&utm_source=GPS&utm_medium=Google%7CProductAds&utm_campaign=Search%7CProduct%20Ads&utm_term=1800673001 Yup, I can pay bills with a t-rex check…i’m tempted to become one of those old people who slows down the checkout line by writing a check instead of using a debit card.

  4. Hmmm. Dinosaurs. You could glue little ones by their feet meandering up the wall and onto the ceiling (The ceiling ones would probably need tacks through their feet, but think of it as shoeing them.) Then you could gradually build an upside down World That Time Forgot on the ceiling, adding dinosaurs, plastic palm trees, sponge rocks, etc., by degrees as you obtain them, especially over the couch where you can lie there and gaze up at them after a long day, to put everything in perspective.

  5. Such beautiful timing! I am about to move in with my dino-obsessed partner – we were gutted that the house we’ve been offered, awesome as it is, has glass shower doors and thus no scope for a dinosaur shower curtain. Solution? These: https://www.etsy.com/nz/listing/235673924/two-black-6-inch-dinosaur-footprint?ref=fp_item&aref=79335653998

    Anyway, thank you for keeping us in joint craft projects for the next year or so! Dinosaurification of new pad – COMMENCE!
