To begin with, place the eyelets into the dinosaurs. This can be done by screwing them into place. Try to find the middle weight of the dinosaur so that he hangs nice and straight.
Usually, the head or center body is a good place, but it will depend on your dinosaur. If you have trouble screwing in your hooks, you can use a fine drill to pre-drill the hole for the hook or use some jewelry wire to wrap it around the body of the dinosaur and create a hook at the top.
Spray paint the dinosaurs with a good quality gold paint and allow them to dry and seal them with a clear sealer.
Simply add some string or ribbon and hang them from your tree.
