11  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / Re: Starry Night Pumpkin on: October 17, 2011 01:53:02 PM

I think I want to do Mona Lisa or The Scream next (I think Mona Lisa would be the easiest though)
12  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / Starry Night Pumpkin on: October 16, 2011 07:17:54 AM

So... The other night I went to the store, bought a pumpkin, and needed to distract myself from something so I decided to attempt to carve Starry Night... I figured the pumpkin was only $4.97 and the carving tools were only $3.99 so even if I messed it up I had less than $10 invested.

I pulled up an image on my laptop, took out a Sharpie, sketched a very loose rendition of it... Sat there staring at it trying to figure out how to best carve it... and then processed the pumpkin and carved from about 10pm until 2am.. and resumed the next morning

I still need to shave a bit down (on the inside) so one of the patches where I removed the pumpkin's skin (??) will shine through better... but other than that I'm fairly satisfied, considering I've never done anything like this in the past - just kitty cats (with those patterns from books) and Eiffel Towers... this was just freehand sketching and carving.

I might do the Mona Lisa and a few other "works of art" to complete it... haven't decided yet though.

I love industrial -- but how did you connect the glass to the car jacks... and prevent them from scratching the glass?

That's sort of what I was thinking with the "board" idea -- a tile makes more sense. The hole issue was having me freak out a bit  Embarrassed

Okay so I'm reconstructing this chandelier -

in the collect water bottles - rinse water bottles with dishsoap - and cut them process/phase. then I will be in the poke holes and tie fishing line process.

My question is... the way they have all the fishing line straight into the ceiling - creating LOADS of holes.. Now... I don't really want to do it like that. I feel like I could either
a) connect it all to a board and fix the board to the ceiling and then run the pendant light kit down
b) Create the chandelier from the middle out and have all of it fixed to one central spot.

The first would probably be easier... but better?

or are there any more reasonable ideas out there?

oh and btw: this will be more of a "show" in my new house than functioning - I don't plan on turning it on often if at all... since I probably won't actually use my dining room very often (except for parties!!)

I've always been curious about the bottom of gibbous scrappy dresses... Are they just done on top of a dress? Because if you were walking how would it just not become a giant slit (so to say)

I haven't been getting my normal notifications from here... weird.

I work nearly every day of the week at night (sad to say)
