This is my first Craftster challenge entry- wahoo! I had a blast making this project, I will never look at a $ store the same again! Take a look and let me know what you think, thanks!



My $10 worth of supplies. The main idea came from the skulls and bobby pins.


I straightened the bobby pins and then made a fan using fimo. I cooked it with pins in and it worked great.



Hammering all of the tacks was the tedious part of the project.



I hung the whole thing from the chain dog leash.


The hanger in it's new home, the kitchen!

That's cool! I think it works on it's own as a piece of art (but the functionality is a nice touch Grin)!

I made mini balls of fimo and stuck them on the bobby pin heads, baked it, painted them gold and then glued on the *bling* Smiley I didn't know if it would work before I tried it, I haven't used fimo much, but it worked like a charm!
