Each year my family has a game or a contest. Last year we had a hat contest & I really want to brag about Hubby's hat...

He made a snow globe on his head!!!

He is a big A Christmas Story fan so his theme was easy his execution was quite impressive!!!

He made the leg lamp from a Barbie-- fishnets & all -- no store bought leg here! 
He made the fragile box, and then He got a glass bowl, turned it upside down, and filled it with Styrofoam balls.   He got an air compressor (the kind used for blowing up air mattresses) and snaked that up his shirt & into the hat, to make the "snow" blow around.

He had speakers on the hat, and had audio from the  movie playing...   

Thats a pic of the actual house from the movie (with the leg lamp in the window), and of course the kid licking the pole is featured too
He did a marvelous job, and I just wanted to show off his mad skills. He didn't win the contest (b/c you'll never beat a kid  Sad )     but I wanted him to get some craftster love, so he can see what a great job he did  Grin

I included a couple shots of the whole group too, I hope you enjoyed your holidays.

That was a great job!

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

Hot dang!  That's not just a hat, that's a Holiday Multi-media Head Covering Extravaganza!  It's situations like this that necessitate an adults' and a kids' category for prizes.  He was robbed, I tell ya, robbed!   Wink
