When we dismantle wood pallets, we have lots of creative possibilities using its wooden planks but we do not think about the blocks of wood that are inserted between the planks or how to use them. And yet, we can also build amazing things with these wooden blocks: candle holder, lamp, pencil pot, shelf, planter and everything that dictates your imagination.

I decided I made a dinosaur bookend with a two-color pallet block. It will perfectly support small pocketbooks or large works of art. Graphics and colorful, this bookend gives your libraries a look. It is made of a recycled pallet wood block, painted in a two-tone geometric, decorated and varnished, surmounted by a reinterpreted stegosaur and will make a perfect decoration for home, office, bookshelf, greenhouse book or unique and offset paperweight that will find a place on a desk, a shelf or a library. This proves that pallets are a source of infinite creativity.

Materials needed:

  • Pallet wood block
  • Blue sky primer paint
  • Golden paint
  • Golden adhesive patterns
  • Glossy Varnish
  • Miniature dinosaur painted, decorated and varnished

Tools needed:

  • Sanding paper
  • Blue and gold acrylic
  • Blue spray paint
  • Paintbrushes
  • Cotton
  • A dinosaur figurine
  • Strong glue
  • Golden Stickers
  • Spray Varnish

Step-by-step Instructions to build this Dinosaur bookend:

After you dismantled your wood pallet and removed the wooden blocks of it, the first work will be to sand and paint one of the wood blocks in blue. Let it dry, time will depend on the paint you chose.

Using a cotton bud, make golden peas.

Paint the dinosaur with the blue spray and then add golden details with a brush.

Sand the feet of the figurine which will be fixed on the wood. Bring a tube of super glue and stick your feet on the top of the block. Paste corners into golden decals.

The block with the Stickers and the figurine is varnished with aerosol. That's it, a mix of a wood pallet block and an upcycled toy that will look great on your desk or on any shelf of the house.

Dimensions:

  • block: 14 x 10 x 8 cm
  • with figurine: 18 cm high
