1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Tacky clock to wall art on: August 22, 2013 07:08:07 AM
Been wanting to try this for a while. I bought a tacky picture frame with a nature scene and a clock in it from the 70s and replaced the nature scene and clock with sticks ( basically I just reused the frame with silhouettes of leaves on the glass

Not sure if I put this in the right board

The clock I started with

Process pic ( sticks still needed to be spray painted)

Finished product

This was totally a low effort high reward project

There was a sale at the thrift store, so I got a leather belt for $2 and turned it into this:

go right ahead, the feather was extremely easy to make (those types of hats are a regular find at value village and other thrift stores)

just some quickies i made the other day when i was bored

the other day i was  cleaning my closet and found a pile of tuxedo shirts from back when i was in highschool band (I played oboe)... i decided that i didn't want to waste them, and just happened to find a leftover package of iron on transfer paper, which usually all flakes off (probably because i buy the cheapest stuff) anyways since the tux shirt is 100% cotton and going to be washed significantly less than a t-shirt i printed out some enlarges sprite images from super mario bros 3 (my fav game) and gave it a little geeky cred

I also had this old hat which i decided could use a face lift
super mario world feather sprite+ iron on transfer+ white craft felt+ twist tie+ a little hot glue= a nice new feather
6  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Stone pendant on: August 15, 2008 09:20:53 PM

unfortunatley this is a very bad pic of this project... its a stone i engraved and turned into a pendant... the stone is actually a dark blue green, and as the photo was taken in photobooth, its a mirror image of the real thing. The symbol on it is the Chi-Ro, essentially its the first 2 letters of the word christ in greek. I was tired of always wearinga  cross so i looked into symbols of the early church and found this

I've been using freezer paper, that way i can stick it to the shirt with an iron, i get around 3 shirts from 1 stencil and can cut 2 at a time, , i'll have to try the glue screen thing, it should make a good substitute for actual proper silk screening until i can afford to get all the stuff, thanx for the link to the tutorial

ya, used a hair dryer to speed up the process, the multi-color is actually pretty easy, takes a bit longer but I don't really see why pple say its so hard, I've done several of this shirt now and though they don't all turn out perfect i havn't had any complete failures
