If you're looking for a great DIY project for your next children's party, this DIY food platter by Three Little Monkeys Studio blog upcycles an unused dinosaur figurine into a Jurassic platter centerpiece.

To make this dinosaur food platter, you'll need an old dinosaur toy your child isn't afraid to part with, a ceramic plate, glue and spray paint. The tutorial begins with lopping off the head of the dinosaur toy -- gasp! -- so make sure your child truly no longer wanted to play with it. Then, the ceramic plate is glued between the dinosaur's severed head and body using heavy-duty glue. After everything is set in place, you can spray paint the plate and dinosaur in whatever color you'd like. The end result is a creative food platter that looks like a dinosaur just smashed through the plate to eat all the party treats.
