That is so cool! And I'm currently obsessing on skulls & crossbones, so I love it even more! Can you post a tutorial?

here goes...hope it's understandable...
2 wire coat hangers
block of wood
wood glue
house paint
wire cutters of some kind...
paint of desired color

so first, straighten the hangers and cut off the hook thing. then drill holes whrer you want them in the wood, of the same size as the hangers. put the wood glue on the ends of the hangers and stick them in the holes. bend them into desired shape. it's easier if you do this before they're dry, b/c they might pop back out, and you don't want to have to re-glue it. you might want to blow dry the glue, b/c it has to sit a LONG time if you don't. then CAREFULLY(!!!!!!) put the pantyhose over the top. it's easiest if you get a pair of knee highs and use one of them. then you paint that with the house paint, that hardens the pantyhose, then you paint it however you want. i made mine a pirate ship b/c it looked kinda like one, but some people just put funky designs on theirs. i made another one that looks kinda like a duke with like a mohawk or something, so i think that's what i'm gonna paint on it. man, i hope this helps....i'll poat pics once i get my USB cable back and finish my new one!

Wow... That is very very cool... I'm kind of speachless (it can also be that it's way late and I should be going to bed  Tongue). I think this is a great way to make something unique and priceless... I'm glad you posted it, and I hope to see the second one you're making!  Congratulations! Now I want to make one, and the tutorial is very clear Smiley Thanks for sharing!
