It's been quite some time since I posted a project on here, but I'm very proud of this one. On our way back from a nerdy boardgaming session, I saw this huge soccer ball in someone's garbage, as we cruised pass I noticed it was a chair. I turned around and told my husband to load it up in the trunk, I'd fix this up, it was so interesting. Not two seconds after he loaded it up, I knew what I'd do; our son has recently discovered Star Wars and become a huge fan, he'd have a death star chair by the time I was finished Here are a few pics of this adventure:
Good point Diane, unfortunately I did use Sculpty III Being my first clay project it's the most common stuff I could find in the craft places and cheapest for something I wasn't sure would work at all. That is a great idea about removing them and putting them somewhere else when the time comes that they might become a safety hazard..thanks
What a great nursery!! Everything is so coordinated and personal...love all the small touches! Excellent job, your friend must be delighted with your work for her little man!
Just about to be a first time mom myself and I'm just curious about the concern from the other posters...is it that the net could fall onto baby (smothering/choking hazard)? or that baby could pull it onto himself (smothering/choking hazard)? or something else?
Just going to include an action shot as there are several imperfections , but for my first clay project I do believe it was a success. The tennis ball actually got a crack in it but as long as it's positioned on the bottom no one will know
I'll be curious to see how well they stand up to actual use. The room's occupant isn't due for another two months but at least I put the creepy black/white puppy in the bottom lefthand corner
If you were planning on mounting it on something, I'm thinking the hot glue should work...depending on how thick the rope is you might need a stronger type of hot glue (I'm not sure if that is even available?).
I definitely see that one of the pictures isn't attached or in a frame or anything and am curious about how they might have did that, but got me thinking...I wonder if you could string wire through the middle of the rope, get something that's heavy enough gage to hold the shape and then just twist into his name. Then you can secure certain areas with some type of tie (like colors ribbons, or something more hardware related) and then you could mount it as is without a back.
