51  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Can one make a decent homemade wig? on: September 12, 2005 08:46:46 PM
I want to be a hobbit for halloween (my nick is german for halfing woman).  HOWEVER, I  have relatively short and very straight hair.  I suppose I could find a brown curly wig out there, but I thought it might be more fun to make my own.  Does anyone know how to do this?  Or should I just go buy one and concentrate on the clothing part of the costume?
52  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Painted Nightstand and Magnetic Bulletin Board on: September 10, 2005 03:39:59 PM
I love to redo furniture, and this is a piece I did in high school.  It was made by my great grandfather, but was a hideous shade of lime green and wasn't being used.  I painted it to look like stone, and now it's my favorite end table.  Oh and I lined the drawer with red felt.

and on the little shelf I wanted it to look like those fantasy fish with flowing fins, swimming in a pool.


The bulletin board I made from a wooden frame (I don't remember the kind of wood I used, but it was about half an inch thick by about 3 to 4 in. wide) and a sheet of metal (my dad worked at a steel mill so I got the metal for free).  I painted the wood blue and sponged on some yellow stars.  Then I glued the metal to the frame with a super strong glue (I think it was liquid nails but I don't remember, it's been awhile).  The board is hung by two holes drilled into the back of the wooden frame.  I just put two screws into the wall, and you just set the frame against them.  The weight of the wood keeps the frame from wiggling off the screws.  I imagine you could probably hang it with two picture hangers attached to the back.


What do you think?  I'm probably going to paint a junky old desk (yay dumpster diving) for my sewing table in the near future.  Not sure of the design though.
