Wicked hat. I could never turn cereal boxes into something that cool. Love the steampunk theme, very well done!

The big picture may be amazing but it's the little details that inspire.

Love it!  The paint is amazing.. I never would have guessed cardboard!  Fantastic work!

Amazing! This is exactly what reusing should be--you can't tell how cheap the materials were or that you were reusing. Well done, in so many ways.

Thanks, again, everyone!

..I could never turn cereal boxes into something that cool...

Yes, you can.  It's not as hard as it might appear.  Paint does some wonderful things.  Smiley

...The paint is amazing.. I never would have guessed cardboard!...

Thanks!  I went back and forth in my mind about painting it.  I'm very indecisive.  I almost painted it red.  Then I thought about it.    Has to match my outfits, be neutral enough to wear with many things.  Red wouldn't do.  Smiley  I'm still perfecting my faux wood look.

...This is exactly what reusing should be--you can't tell how cheap the materials were or that you were reusing...

Yeah, I totally agree.  I strive to make things out of discarded materials.  The more useless the better.  Smiley  It brings me more satisfaction knowing I can give it new life and keep it out of the landfill.  90% of my craft supplies are stuff someone didn't want anymore.  Plus, I've found poly clay, vintage notions, broken jewelry bits and other supplies at secondhand and garage sales.  It's truly amazing what you can find when you open you eyes to it.  People, in general, are very wasteful.

I really love the detailing.  Did you prime/gesso the hat before painting?
I've been thinking of cool props to make for my little baby's next photos and a cute cereal box hat might have to make an appearance. Thanks for the idea.

I'm addicted to polyclay and beads right now. HELP!

This would be amazing if were made out of a real trunk but the fact that you made this from cereal boxes makes it INCREDIBLY AMAZING! Wow. Great workmanship!! It looks fantastic on you.

That is crazy awesome.  I am so green with envy of your talent.

I love projects like this where you can make something gorgeous out of next to nothing.  You are very talented!  I'm going to add your blog to my RSS feed. 

I've been going to the steampunk forum on brass goggles for about 2 weeks now and I just can't stop looking through all the gorgeous creations there.   

Oh!  I also saw your staempunk'd nerf gun on your blog.  AMAZING. 

Thanks for sharing!
