1  Ouija Board in Completed Projects by yarn_tart on: October 12, 2007 08:54:22 AM
My boyfriend makes horror movies and the last one he did required a Ouija board. He was just going to use the Parker Bros board, but I said, Hey!  I craft - I'll just make one.  Besides, it was an opportunity to learn woodburning, which was something I was already interested in doing.

Here's the finished product with the planchette:


And another angle:


And a close up:


Thanks for looking!

2  Spooky Plaque in Halloween Decor and Parties by yarn_tart on: October 11, 2007 06:34:11 AM
I've just gotten into woodburning, so I took my roommate's pumpkin carving directions and transfered it to a plaque to woodburn.  Then, I stained it three different colors with antiquing stains.

This is what I came up with:

3  I want to be Cherry Darling, but I have too many legs! in Halloween Costumes by yarn_tart on: September 18, 2007 05:19:08 PM
So, I've decided it would be the coolest things if one of my costumes was Cherry Darling from Planet Terror (Grindhouse) this year.

Here's a pic of her.


So my dilemma is (besides worrying about what I will look like in such skimpy clothing) how do I create a machine gun leg without cutting off my leg and adding a machine gun?  Come on you crafty people - I know you'll come up with my best solution!

4  First projects in Stenciling: Completed Projects by yarn_tart on: July 06, 2007 06:38:30 AM
I just started experimenting with stencils and it's so much fun.  It's the kind of instant gratification crafting that I love - so different from knitting.  Anyway, I showed my roomie how to freezer paper stencil last night and here are our results.

Most of the stencils are from Stencilry.


Amelie shirt made by moi.


It's my 13-yr-old cousin's bday this week so I thought I'd make her a shirt. 


My roomie's first project.  It's the white tree of Gondor.  She just found a picture and traced.


This is the first stencil I made on my own.  Of course, it's really basic but I like it.  It's for my bf for his bday next week.  The picture's kind of crappy because this one was taken with my camera phone.  Here's a closeup:


The "Restricted" is just a little crooked.  I think it works though. 

Tell me what you think!

5  Howdy Y'all Timekeeper in CHALLENGE 10 ENTRIES by yarn_tart on: April 04, 2006 09:56:29 AM
I haven't participated in a craft challenge before so I was all excited I'd finally decided to try.  I had a bunch of shoes in my closet I could work with, but first I decided to try a pair of white sneakers.  I spent almost a month batiking them and waiting for them to dry only to discover that the method I'd used wouldn't work on sneakers like it does on t-shirts - the fabric was too think and the dye just snuck in behind the areas I'd tried to block off.  So no batiked shoes. 

Then Saturday morning it came to me in a dream - literally.  I ran out to the thrift store yesterday searching for orange rain boots I'd seen there a few weeks ago.  Of course, as luck would have it, someone had bought the things that I thought would be terrible to wear.  How dare someone wear my craft challenge!  I did however find another pair of boots that, with a little alteration, would fit the idea perfectly.

I came home with a pair of children's cowboy boots and a clock.



I destroyed the clock (which was not easy - most of the screws were stripped) and the boots.  I cut a hole in the boots the size of the clock face, slipped the face into the space between the outside material and lining and screwed it in.  Then, I did a crochet chain stitch around the outside of the face to make a "lasso."  The clock works fine, but you can't really get to the alarm, so no alarm anymore, but that's okay.  You can get to the battery to change that.



If you want to see my failed attempt at the blue shoes, head over to http://yarn-tart.livejournal.com/ and see pretty much this post all over again, plus the other shoes.  Yay!
