So are these etched glass? of is it another technique? They are very cool, and if easy(ish) to do, I think I could give it a try! Cool idea for presents, too . . .

Yes, etched! I use Armor Etch and it is very easy. The trickiest part is cutting out your designs and if you have a cutting machine or use ready made stickers it's probably super quick!

Really?! I am very excited. I will have to look into armor etch and see if it's do-able for me! What material do you use for your stickers?

Edit - never mind - I just looked for the Armor Etch on Amazon and saw links for all sorts of vinyl stickers, etc. Thanks!

6  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head! Now with more pictures! on: October 24, 2017 09:07:25 AM
My hubby and I like to dress up in couples' costumes for Halloween. This year, I saw some simple Mr. and Mrs. PH costumes online, and knew what I wanted to do!

The body is just a big piece of felt, and I made all the face pieces out of felt as well, then sewed the hook side of velcro onto the backs, so they are removable - you can totally make different faces on the costumes!

Here are some versions:













My hubby wasn't available for the phot shoot, so I played the roles of Mr. and Mrs. PH, but there are two potato bodies along with the various facial pieces. I am still planning to make a couple of bows (for a bow tie and a hair bow) as well as a hat. If you have thoughts for other PH accessories, feel free to give me ideas!

Thanks for looking!  Grin

Edited to add more pics with the added accessories!

New hair, a nose ring, earrings and a hair bow:


Scar, cigar, hat, bow tie!


At the party:


And notice how the Mister's eyes are looking a different direction here:

That's fabulous! I am going with my daughter just after Thanksgivinig - I didn't know that they were going to proceed with other movies - I will have to look into tickets for those, too! Smiley

Fabulous! I have a bunch of totally-do-not-match cloth napkins at home - I love the idea of having them match on one side at least - may need to get on that idea!

I think girls of all ages like Capitan Jack Sparrow Smiley  Bad guys are attractive for women Wink
I really like Johnny Depp as an actor though, trying to follow his life and career. Read that he owns this villa in France https://tranio.com/france/adt/1635106/,12 bedrooms and a guest house  Shocked


Ha! Yes - I understand the attraction of JS, but personally prefer Johnny Depp on the whole! I'd love to visit him in France!

Thanks!

These are joining my previously-made monsters:



Just one, big, spooky family!! Grin

I need to think of what to do next - I was thinking a vampire - easy enough with the teeth. What else, though? Not sure a werewolf lends itself to a koozie . . . Will have to cogitate on that one . . .
