2  Steampunk Goggles From Juice Containers in CHALLENGE 97 ENTRIES by Ixtab on: April 05, 2014 08:04:16 PM

My lovely wife (Arachnea) told me about Craftster and about the monthly craft challenges. She's so awesome and is helping me write this as I've never navigated Craftster before. I was told this month the challenge was to use a container and re-purpose it, so I grabbed some Welch's juice containers:

They became the focal point of my Steam-punkified goggles:

Because I wear glasses, I even fit an old prescription into the goggles so I could see out of them more easily:

Essentially, I used dollar store items to create most things - the silver corrugation is from princess tiara's in the kids section - The red interface is a binder sectional, the goggle base is a pair of goggles from the "tools" section. I spray painted everything with a copper - and spray painted the front pieces silver. The juice containers make up the body of the goggles - the spherical part that sticks out, to which other things are attached. The strap is a belt from a thrift store.

Thanks for looking!
