For my art project(that's due on Tuesday, of course), we have to make the largest sculpture we can, and the materials have to be under $10. 

I have been through several ideas but can't think of anything worthy of making, which is why I'm kind of down to the wire now. 

I'm thinking some kind of shelf(since I need some anyways).  I can get all the materials from a thrift store or something, but the only materials we're allowed to use that were NOT bought for under 10$ is like glue, paint, etc.

Brainstorming?  I'm going to post this in the housewares discussion board too, to get as many ideas as quickly as possible! 

Thanks guys, I know someone will come up with something.  Right?!


but then night rolls around & it all starts making
sense. there is no right way or wrong way, you
just have to live. so i do what i do & at least I
exist. what could mean more than this?

Have you hit thrift stores looking for furniture under $10? The thrift stores around here have some killer furniture for under $10, and that would be nice and big. Smiley

You can probably pick up a shelf (or other furn.) at a thrift store for under $10.  Decoupage would be artsy.  You can use an old mag., news papers, etc.You might even find something to work with in the thrift shop (games and puzzle pieces, maps, cheap prints, old books, recycled fabrics, ties,  etc.)Remember that you can always put a final coat to protect it on later, since this will probably run you over the price limit (unless they consider it paint?)

"If I had a magic charm
It would protect you from all harm
There'd be no sirens to alarm
We could stay here every day
And if I were a super hero
Good guys all the villains zero
I'd save you from all that is evil
So you can sleep at night"

Thanks guys, I was thinking some cheap furniture at a thrift store too... I just need to find time to go searching!  Huh

And I think a final coating, like mod podge?, wouldn't be considered part of the 10 bucks.
