reindeer antlers

Dec 23, 2014 at 12:58 am (3D printing, accessories, head pieces, holiday) (, , , , , , , )

I used my 3D printer to print out some reindeer antlers to wear on Christmas. I printed them in white PLA filament then painted them a more ivory color. I used an elastic cord and tied a clasp on each end for easier use. Download the file here.

penguin ornaments

Dec 24, 2013 at 7:03 pm (holiday) (, , , , , , , , , , )

I couldn’t find a lot of cute penguin ornaments so I made my own! I found a tutorial from craftberrybuch.com

I didn’t add the feet on mine, I think they look cuter without them.

top hat for the tree

Dec 24, 2013 at 6:37 pm (hats, holiday) (, , , , , , , , , )

Instead of the traditional star or angel at the top of the tree, I wanted to do something different. I decided to make our tree an awesome top hat – like a sir!

I made the top hat out of burlap lined with cardboard to make it real stiff. I used a mixture of sewing and hot glue.

I went a little crazy and decorated almost my entire place. These are just a few things I did :]

Made a cute penguin print table runner and got those cute top hat baskets from Michaels

Found this sheer snowflake fabric at Joanns to cover the two end tables (it got glitter everywhere!) and made a candy cane candle holder for the little fellow. I used a glass bowl and taped the candy canes to it and tied a bow around them to hold in place.

Searched high and low through all the picks at Michaels and created this wreath for the front door.

Han Solo

For Halloween I wanted to be Han Solo. I found a black vest and blue pants at a shrift store and tailored them to myself. I already had a white button up shirt.

I had to paint the red stripes on the pants sides.

I ordered the blaster online from officialstarwarscostumes.com and had to spray paint it black. I then had to make the holster for it. I got the cute Chewie backpack from eBay.

Halloween

Oct 30, 2013 at 7:50 pm (holiday) (, , , , , , , , , , , , )

Made a few Halloween decorations for inside the house.

Made a table top cover with some left over purple fabric I had and found a spider web table runner I cut down to put over top. I found these awesome owl candle holders at Michaels. I made the center flower arrangement and smaller candle holders.

 

 

Bought a bunch of Halloween marbles to put in these glasses to make candle holders for these little pumpkin candles

 

 

I also got some spider web fabric from Joanns and covered some end tables
