DIY Tutorial: Clever Dinosaur Serving Dish!

DIY homemade white dinosaur serving tray

So… I have a major crush on this super fun & oh-so-clever project by Gretchen of Three Little Monkeys Studio! Her playful DIY Dinosaur Serving Dish is simple to make – you just need to a little patience to allow for curing time. It’s affordable too! You can upcycle old toys and melamine plates from the toddler days, or pick up items from your local Dollar Store or Target’s $1 spot.

This concept can easily be applied to other playful critters too… think bunnies for Easter, owls or black cats for Halloween, or reindeer for Christmas. Read on for step-by-step details on how to bring this playful idea to life yourself!



by Gretchen

Takes 2-3 days with curing time


– hard plastic dinosaur (it needs to be sturdy and balanced)
– small melamine plate
– sand paper
– adhesive*
– spray paint
– hand held saw
– parchment paper

All of the materials needed to make your own dinosaur serving dish (more…)

Operation Shower: Party. Support. Love. {Give & Receive!}

Operation Shower - Party. Support. Love.

If you’ve followed HWTM for a while, you probably know that Operation Shower is a nonprofit organization that’s very near and dear. If you’ve never heard of them before, allow me to introduce you. :)  The video below will explain what they do better than my own words ever could.

Give a Little, Get a Lot Back

This week, Operation Shower is running a campaign called Party. Support. Love. to try and raise $5000 online. It’s a lot harder to raise $5k than you may think, and I was trying to think of what I could do to help them raise the final $2K by this weekend. $2K sounds like a lot in one chunk, but the truth is that every little bit really adds up!

The core of what we do at HWTM is design and share, so that’s what I’m turning to today in an effort to help. So… for anyone that donates $25 or more to Operation Shower via this link by midnight on November 24th – we will send you the HWTM Printable Thanksgiving Party Essentials Kit of your choice. (See details below on how to notify us of your donation.) The printable kits retail at $22, so it’s just a small gesture to help say thank you for your generosity and support of a very worthy cause. The REAL benefit of giving is – of course – how good it makes you feel! Speaking of which… please take a few minutes to check out this video… ;) Thank you!

Kids Thanksgiving Craft: Colorful Pinecone Turkeys

pinecone turkeys

You know how some things just take a year to get to? Ya… me too. ;)

Last year I made these fun Stuffed Glove Turkeys, which were a great craft for the kids that also doubled as kid-friendly party decor. But I also made one more Thanksgiving craft that never got posted… until now! These cute Pinecone Turkeys are a breeze to make and you can use any color or pattern of paper to make them perfectly match your own Thanksgiving decor.

Added bonus: depending on where you live – you can make this project even more fun by kicking it off with an outdoor scavenger hunt for fallen pinecones! Whoever finds the biggest one gets a fun little prize. But don’t worry – craft store pinecones work just as well… being a San Diegan myself, that’s where these little guys started out! (more…)
