So, if you know me, you know 2 things about me:
1 - I love my iPhone and anything Apple
2 - I love dinosaurs
Needless to say, this is the perfect combo of the 2, is it not? I have a plethora of iPhone tripods around. And I had these dino-butts laying around since this project, so I decided this would be the perfect opportunity to utilize them!
You will need:
The butt of a dinosaur (mine are from the dollar store)
A suction cup
Use a utility knife to cut your dino in half. Hopefully, yours are hollow like mine were (otherwise, no part of this project will work!)
Inject your dino butt with the caulking. Use your finger to make sure the caulking is packed in tightly.
Stick your suction cup in the wet caulking. Set your phone against it to make sure you're putting the suction cup in at the right angle. Use a paint brush to remove any overflow caulking between the dino butt and the suction cup.
Next, dab a little caulking on the bottoms of the feet and tail. If you don't do this, the dino will slide backwards every time your phone is resting on it. The caulking gives it enough grip to sit still.
Unfortunately, since there is so much caulking inside the dino, this will take a few days to dry properly... about 4-5 days. It's worth it, though, for how inexpensive, unique and fun this is!
I'm loving my dino-butt iPhone tripod!
