21  Minecraft Skeleton! in CHALLENGE 104 ENTRIES by Abbeeroad on: November 03, 2014 01:32:50 PM
Kiddo is obsessed with Minecraft so of course we had have a Minecraft Halloween.

After rotating ideas several times, we settled on this skeleton idea based on an image we found online. The skeleton body is duct tape and I painted the head with varying shades of gray.

The bow is painted foam core that I swiped from the trash pile at work.

Of course, the pumpkin matches.

And because school frowns upon the whole "not being able to see" thing, I made a smaller skeleton head that sits on top of kiddo's head. Cheesy

Thanks for looking! Happy Halloween. Smiley

23  Fake Swap Craftalong for Swap Junkies!!! 2014 in Craftalongs by Abbeeroad on: October 22, 2014 05:19:06 PM
I received from my partner in the faux taxidermy swap. Since the deadline was rapidly approaching and my partner knew I had a crafty husband, she sent it unmounted. I have a quick pic but I'm going to see if I can get better ones soon!

Thank you to my partner and the awesome organizer (always I'm looking at you!) Wink

Haha. Yes the recipient loves it! Look! It has antlers now!

It's hard to get a good shot of the wire frame but it's awesome. Might be heading out to pick out fabric later.

I love the antlers bare, but what do you guys think, should I cover them?

Wow! That beaded bag is so detailed! Amazing work.

I have a couple progress pics to share for the faux taxidermy swap. Hubby has been working hard today...

Still needs antlers then I get to attack it with batting and upholstery canvas.

Here's a shot that shows scale and also shows off my man Wink

Loving all this Halloween stuff! Kiddo asked if we could decorate our house tonight, I better get on it!

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Charms
SPEW: n/a
House: Gryffindor
Project Name: Upcycle tie dye
Project Page Link: n/a
Brief Description: I got a splash of black dye on one of my shirts during some recent dye projects (there's always at least one going on here). Rather than declare the shirt ruined or turned into cleaning rags, I decided to breathe some new life into it by fixing it with dye. I didn't get a before shot of my unfortunate "black spot," but I did get this pre-dye pic:

And post-dye:

Definitely works better for me this way! Wink

Class/Challenge/House Pride: SoAR
SPEW: n/a
House: Gryffindor
Project Name: Rock Cacti
Project Page Link: Pinspiration
Brief Description: My kiddo and I found some rocks outside and painted them to look like little cacti!

I may actually keep this plant alive, ha!
