Make your own gifts for Christmas – dinosaur phone stand for men or women.

DIY Christmas gifts - dinosaur phone stand for men or women

You will need:

  • The rear end of a dinosaur
  • Sealant
  • A suction cup
  • Paintbrush


  • Cut your dinosaur in half with a utility knife. Hopefully your dinosaurs are hollow, otherwise no part of this project will work.
  • Spray the dino’s butt with the sealant. Use your finger to make sure the sealant is snug.
  • Insert your suction cup into the wet sealant. Hold your phone against it to make sure you place the suction cup at the correct angle. Use a brush to remove the spilled sealant between the dino part and the suction cup.
  • Next, dab a little sealant on the bottom of the feet and tail. If you don’t do this, the dino will slide backwards every time you want to use it. The sealant will give it enough support to sit still.
  • Unfortunately, because there is so much sealant inside the dino, it takes a few days for it to dry properly – about 4 – 5 days. But it’s worth it because the project is cheap, unique, and fun!

Cheap Christmas gifts 2022 from the kitchen for parents - sweet spoons with lozenges


  • Preheat the oven to 160 degrees.
  • Crush the lozenges in a freezer bag (you can use a kitchen mallet).
  • Using a teaspoon, pour the crushed candies into the spoon mold – making sure to leave some at the top of the spoon part and the neck of the spoon (where the spoon and handle meet). These are the areas that break easily.
  • Place in the oven and let melt completely – about 10 minutes. The lozenges will melt a bit, so you may need to refill the molds. If so, you should let them bake a few minutes longer.
  • Remove from the oven and let cool completely.
  • Carefully remove the spoons. If a piece breaks, just add a little more crushed candy and bake a few minutes longer.
  • Melt the chocolate according to the instructions on the package. Dip one end of the spoon into the chocolate and immediately dip into the sprinkles. Place on wax paper to dry.
