[DIY] Using Old Toys Only: The Golden Dino DIY Home Decor

Got Unwanted Old Toys? You can turn them into golden treasures.

  • Preparation: 5 min
  • Glue toys: 5-15 mins depending on the size of the frame
  • Paint each toy: 10-15 min
  • Spray: 2 min (this is the faster alternative if you don't want to paint each toy)


  • Old toys: (we recommend using  dinosaur toys)
  • A picture frame:  (you can also use a mirror - we all think it will look much better and more functional), 
  • Superglue
  • Brushes
  • Golden paint /golden spray
  • A pair of gloves

The Golden DIY Home Decor: Step 1

The best DIY home decor  for your family! Start by asking your kids to select the suitable toys they want and glue each of them on the picture frame. Don't forget your gloves!

Step 2

After carefully gluing the toys, it is time to paint golden color on these cute fellas. You can ask your kids to do this step, which can greatly enhance their hand-eye coordination. Most importantly, painting on small items can improve their patience.

FYI, it is very important to find suitable golden paint, otherwise, it's going to affect the FINAL coloring. We recommend you buy several paints to find the perfect one.

Step 3: You got yourself a nice DIY home decor

I used the golden spray in this step. You can try the same thing if you want efficiency (also they look quite perfect if you use the spray).
