Sunday

Toy Shelf

It's time to clean out the toy box. Broken stuff, missing pieces - even the Salvation Army wouldn't want any of it. Perfect for the crafter.


Materials
painted wooden shelf with pegs
game board
large dinosaurs
game pieces
small toys
white glue
epoxy
clear spray paint

Tools
saw
serrated bread knife
mat knife


With a serrated bread knife, cut the end off of the dinosaurs to reveal the hollow insides. Learn from my mistake; it may be better to make this cut on an angle to have the beast face upright when attached to the shelf. I had to recut one of mine.
Cut off the pegs so that they are not too long for your amputated T-Rex and friends.
Smear white glue on the top of the shelf and place it upside down on the back of the game board. Weight it down and wait until it dries (at least 8 hours). Take a mat knife and trim the game board to fit.

With the epoxy, glue game pieces and/or small toys to the edges of the shelf. You may need to fill in the area around the game board with game pieces too as the board may not be as long as your shelf.

Apply epoxy to the cut ends of the dinos and the top of the pegs. Place the dinos on the pegs and allow them to set up.

Spray with clear spray paint for a polished look and to protect the game board.

Give this to the new baby in the neighborhood or hang it in your toy room; that is if you have enough toys to still have a toy room.

This is awesome! The animals cut in half makes such a great visual punchline... it's unexpected and quirky and funny and wonderful. Love this! Reminds me of those awesome bookends you made with the horse cut in half. :)
