1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Easter / Plastic egg wreath on: March 31, 2010 02:20:19 PM
Thanks FoxyBlue for posting this tutorial  

I saw FoxyBlue's awesome wreath and decided I needed to make one. It was so so easy. I made my wreath quite a bit bigger than FoxyBlue's and the one on the tutorial. Mine is 22".

I got the 3" wired ribbon from the dollar store. Sweet score! The eggs on the bottom layer are the standard 2" size and the larger ones on the top are about 3". I loved this project and will definitely be making more.
Thanks for looking!
2  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Valentine's Day / Homemade play dough for class Valentine's on: February 21, 2010 05:28:12 PM
We wanted a more special Valentine to hand out to classmates then just dinky little cards. So we found a recipe for playdough and decided that would be perfect. The recipe was from Familyfun.com and it was awesome! It turned out great and feels and smells like "real playdough"

This is the playdough soup! Yummy! (so not edible) lol

After stirring and stirring and yes, more stirring it thickened up really nicely. And boy was my arm sore! lol

And the final product! We rolled out the dough and cut out thick hearts. We then put the hearts in zipper baggies. The kids loved it! Each child also got a chocolate each. The teachers got the hand lotions with my daughters hand stuck on the bottle. These were a hit!

Thanks for looking!
3  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Ariel and Prince Eric on: February 21, 2010 04:47:41 PM
OMG! I am so glad this is finished. It has been a WIP for about 2 and a half to 3 years. I made it for my daughter who loves Ariel almost as much as me. When I first started this my daughter was about two. I was just about finished with it and left the room for just a minute and she decided to "help" and painted their faces black. After wiping most of the black paint off I got really frustrated that my hard work was ruined and put it away, until now. I repainted and touched up the whole thing and I could'nt be happier with it.

I hand drew and painted this in acrylics on plywood. I cut it out with my jig saw.

Comments welcome!
Thanks for looking!
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Alice in Wonderland inspired Mini Top Hat on: February 21, 2010 04:11:38 PM
I've been in Alice mode lately due to the Tim Burton version coming out and joining the Alice swap (my first swap) yeay! A friend and I got together last night to make these to wear to the movie when it releases. So this is what we came up with.

Back view. Mine is on the left.

My hat with a veil in the front and roses (painting the roses red) and the bow on the back

Another back view

And for fun an action shot

This was a quick project and so fun. I got to destash too. All I bought were the hats and the little roses. Everything else I already had.

Comments would really be appreciated. I've never made anything like this before.

Thanks for looking!
5  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / Attack of the ZOMBIE Ornies! on: January 28, 2010 05:07:05 PM
I made these zombie ornaments for a Halloween tree. They're made from salt dough and cooked in the microwave. The zombie's brains burned a little and smelled like burnt toast lol. They're painted with acrylics and sealed with clear glaze spray. My first time sculpting with salt dough and first zombie project. How'd I do???

First the zombie head

Zombie cat

Thanks for looking. Comments appreciated.
