1  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 12 ENTRIES / Marie-Antoinette Headpiece on: June 01, 2006 04:34:43 PM
I was inspired to make a headpiece for Challenge 12 by Sofia Coppolas movie Marie-Antoinette .



I chose pipe cleaners, pom-poms and plastic Easter grass. I also used a Styrofoam head, beads, feathers and some sequins



I attached sequins to the Styrofoam head with pins to make a pretty Marie-Antoinette face. I then started adding pipe cleaners around the hairline.

And I kept adding the pipe cleaners. More and more pipe cleaners. Soon I was hoping that a hot glue gun would appear in my life.



I then swept up the pipe cleaners and attached them with hot glue. I wasn't so happy about having a hot glue gun in my life after I burned three fingers. That glue sure is hot.

I stuck little pom-poms around the hairline, glued big pom-poms around the back of the head, then filled the spaces in between with even more pom-poms.



Beads were added to the pipe cleaners that were still sticking out. Each end of these pipe cleaners got two big beads and a colored feather before being accented with a pom-pom or two.



I'm not sure how I can get the headpiece off the Styrofoam head so I can wear it, but until I figure that out, it makes a good display as it stands.



It will go with the shoes that I made last week... (http://www.flawedmaude.com/2006/05/22/color-shoes/)...

I was surprised how much choice I had at my local thrift store. I wanted to pick something truly horrible and I finally settled on a painting of a reclining nude man:

It was way overpriced (in my opinion anyway) at $4.99, but I just loved how the artist used a canvas board that was partially sawed through with holes drilled

And best of all was not that the hands and feet were mere suggestions, but that the flabby bits at the waist-line were lovingly detailed.

I used some flowers leftover from the Easter Hat, paper from my paper scraps boxes, fold leaved leftover from Christmas decorations, and Santa beard curls.
  
The painting reminded me of someone realaxing while looking at something in the sky. So I started by adding a mattress-like white foundation for the guy to lie on and then I added some brown paper to the bottom of the board.
 
I covered the bottom of the board with green leaves then added a few gold leaves on the white mattress thingy.
 
For the sky I stuck on ripped pieces of blue, black and blue/bold paper. I added some Santa beard curls for clouds and stuck a red tomato cut-out in the sky to give him something to look at.

Then I glued on some flowers to really tart it up.
