2  Easter front yard decorations... in Easter by blupony808 on: April 16, 2011 10:04:40 PM
Made these things up to put in my yard...to goof off on easter...love easter baskets, bunnies, and spring flowers...yay!

This basket was made using pipe insulating foam for the handle and rim...I wove some fun foam into a basket texture...used a christmas bow for the top and finished it of with some gold spray paint...the giant eggs I purchased from a craft store.

The giant flowers where made using some odd flower plates, dowel rods, and for the leaves corrugated plastic found at my local craft store...I was thinking about Honey I shrunk the kids when making these flowers.

These bunnies were made out of corrugated plastic and painted using spray paint for the base color pink and
acrylics for the details.

3  Re: Angler Fish light...here fishy fishy mmmyum in CHALLENGE 60 ENTRIES by blupony808 on: March 11, 2011 11:01:21 PM
Here is the pattern...or patterns for the angler fishy...

Profile of body and tail...

Chin and belly...


Forehead...where the eyes would go....and upper lip/mouth....

And for the light stem I used a sock scrap...I guess you could come up with your own idea on how this part would look and pop it in at the top of his head...and as for the bumps on his head I had to put those on to cover up the light switch access area....with the teeth didn't use a pattern at all...just folded a white eco felt sheet in half and free formed the front teeth a lil' more fun that way...also the single side teeth where just cut out and hot glued on...and his lip was just sewn in after I assenbled him...at the base I used a draw string concept to gather and tie off the base...even if you don't want to make a lamp you could prolly tweek or taper the belly pattern at the square part to be sewn up and made like a regular plushie...and one last bit the side fins were labled wrong my bad(they look like a fan)...I used a basic cut and pinch seam to insert and sew the fins on his sides......hope you ENJOY!

And Thank You for your votes!!! Shocked Grin

4  Angler Fish light...here fishy fishy mmmyum in CHALLENGE 60 ENTRIES by blupony808 on: March 06, 2011 03:38:59 AM
I kept thinking about how cool this fish is...I mean the ol' angler has a built in night light...and scary as all *bleep*...sooo I wanted to make a more huggable version of him...and here he is.......

The fish body is made out of polar fleece...his fins are a cotton batik style quilters fabric...used doll eyes...the light stem is covered in a sock bit...and his teeth are made out of white eco felt...

This is the light base and armature...used a night light kit...garden hose for structure and to insulate the wire from the fabric 'n' polyfil...the orange cover is from an old toy that I found for a dollar at goodwill...wraped up in tape...painted the base blue...ta-da fish night light  Grin

An up close on how the light bulb cover works....the clear tabs keeps the cover on like a friction/snap fit situation...carved out the center of the orange ball with my dremel cause it had all of those screw tabs and structure on the inside where the old toy light used to be...just drizzled hot glue on the inside to diffuse the light a little bit...my dremel rocks  Grin

5  Old clock and snack plate...into new moon clock... in CHALLENGE 59 ENTRIES by blupony808 on: February 06, 2011 10:13:06 PM
Spent about 3.50 all together...the clock was 3 bucks and the old disney snack plate was 50 cents...used some hot glue and construction glue...a couple of fresh coats of acrylic paints...and some craft foam bits for the rocket tail...and a new fun Moon clock...

Started to take apart the clock...drilled a hole in the plate to put the clock bits through...

Cut up the house part...glued the plate in place...

Started the base coats of color...on the night sky...and the moon face...

Ta-da...Moon clock...made out of an old clock and end of the road snack kid's plate...a new life fer both...

Covered up the glue globs with some hot pink eco felt...

This pic was just to show how the rocket was made...
