Hi guys!
I came into this challenge ready to vote for myself, (What a great prize!), but I've already seen about 8 projects that I want to vote for, and it's only day TWO!

Here's my entry... a puppet theatre for my little guy:


The Materials:  Two Table Cloths, (I didn't end up using the yellow), Two packs of electrical tape, (one pictured, I needed to buy a second), Red duct tape, bamboo garden skewers, Star sequins, bristol board and a shiney bag.  (I wish I had figured out how to use those swirly things!!!! They wouldn't install properly Sad )


Some Progress Pics:



All finished:


My son luvin it... (This made it all worth it!!!  Smiley )



Thanks for looking, and good luck to everyone!

wow---that has got to be one of the most inventive ways of using dollar store stuff I've seen yet!  I cannot believe that tent can be made for less then 10 dollars!  That would cost so much in a toy store!
Wonderful job and good luck in the voting!

Wow, you rock!  GREAT work.

Is it all just duct taped together, or did you sew?

Thanks for all the great feedback!  It makes my day Cheesy

Wow, you rock!  GREAT work.

I used the entire roll of duct tape on the frame.  I guess the dollar store rolls don't have as much as Home Depot Wink   But the tablecloth stripes are taped with red electrical tape on the back, and then I cut the electrical tape into squares to pretty up the front, (lotsssss of squares).  The electrical tape was four colours for a buck, so that worked awesome!
