My fiance, Shane, and his nephew, Lucky (yes that is his real name lol) have birthdays that are one day apart.
For their birthdays this year, Shane's 20th and Lucky's 1st, they had a sort-of joint birthday party. The theme was PIRATES!
Anyways, I had to come up with some cool pirate themed gifts. Here is what I gave them.
I made them each a treasure chest filled with treasure! I bought unfinished wood chests at AC Moore, then painted them brown. I painted the inside gold with gold spray paint, and I freehanded their names on the front with some gold leaf paint my grandmother had. I kinda messed up and sprayed some of the outside, but then I decided it looked kinda cool. I stood way back and sprayed all over to give it sort of a glittery look.
The stuff I got Shane mostly came from Deadmentellnotales. com
. I got him a pirate shower curtain (which was his big request), a Pirate USA flag, gold dubloons, mini Pirates playing cards, a Pirate Weapon poster, some Pirate money, and a parrott (toy from Burger King!)
I thought this Pirate money was pretty funny! I bought two so I could frame them. I would've rather used gold letters, but the silver were the only ones I had at the time.
Here are Lucky's goodies. I got him two kids Pirate books, then I knitted an octopus, from a pattern I got on here somewhere, and I winged a pattern for a crab. Both were done in Red Heart Super Saver.
Thanks for looking!
P.S. First real post!
