1  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / Garland...skulls 'n' jack o'lanterns... on: November 08, 2012 08:59:48 PM
Just started playing around with scraps of paper and came up with some cool forms...decided to turn it into some neat paper craft...always wanted to work with paper...
2  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Easter / Easter front yard decorations... on: April 16, 2011 10:04:40 PM
Made these things up to put in my yard...to goof off on easter...love easter baskets, bunnies, and spring flowers...yay!




This basket was made using pipe insulating foam for the handle and rim...I wove some fun foam into a basket texture...used a christmas bow for the top and finished it of with some gold spray paint...the giant eggs I purchased from a craft store.







The giant flowers where made using some odd flower plates, dowel rods, and for the leaves corrugated plastic found at my local craft store...I was thinking about Honey I shrunk the kids when making these flowers.







These bunnies were made out of corrugated plastic and painted using spray paint for the base color pink and
acrylics for the details.


3  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 60 ENTRIES / Angler Fish light...here fishy fishy mmmyum on: March 06, 2011 03:38:59 AM
I kept thinking about how cool this fish is...I mean the ol' angler has a built in night light...and scary as all *bleep*...sooo I wanted to make a more huggable version of him...and here he is.......




The fish body is made out of polar fleece...his fins are a cotton batik style quilters fabric...used doll eyes...the light stem is covered in a sock bit...and his teeth are made out of white eco felt...








This is the light base and armature...used a night light kit...garden hose for structure and to insulate the wire from the fabric 'n' polyfil...the orange cover is from an old toy that I found for a dollar at goodwill...wraped up in tape...painted the base blue...ta-da fish night light  Grin

















An up close on how the light bulb cover works....the clear tabs keeps the cover on like a friction/snap fit situation...carved out the center of the orange ball with my dremel cause it had all of those screw tabs and structure on the inside where the old toy light used to be...just drizzled hot glue on the inside to diffuse the light a little bit...my dremel rocks  Grin

Spent about 3.50 all together...the clock was 3 bucks and the old disney snack plate was 50 cents...used some hot glue and construction glue...a couple of fresh coats of acrylic paints...and some craft foam bits for the rocket tail...and a new fun Moon clock...



Started to take apart the clock...drilled a hole in the plate to put the clock bits through...



Cut up the house part...glued the plate in place...



Started the base coats of color...on the night sky...and the moon face...



Ta-da...Moon clock...made out of an old clock and end of the road snack kid's plate...a new life fer both...



Covered up the glue globs with some hot pink eco felt...



This pic was just to show how the rocket was made...
