Feed Me!

I just posted my piece on eBay for the HA31 group Eerie Equinox / Spooky Spring Theme Challenge. I decided to go with a lovely Spring bouquet of man eating plants, inspired by the movie "Little Shop of Horrors".

The three man eating plants and 5 thorny vines have been made from paper mache and various clays.

The arrangement is done in black, green and orange to match the vase. The vase has a crackle finish that has also been antiqued for an aged look. There are four hand painted skull and crossbones that go around the entire vase.

I decided to include a one time feeding of plant food. I can't afford anymore, it will be hard enough now to work with only one thumb.

Photobucket

The whole piece measures about 21 inches high. The arrangement is not glued in so it may be added to or changed to the buyers liking.

Harry Potter Monster Book Box

I had so much fun with the Harry Potter swap on Craftsters that my sister, mieljolie, and I decided to do a personal swap. For my project choice, I made a Monster Book of Monsters box.

The teeth and tongue are made out of polymer clay that I stained and glazed.

I added a spine to stroke incase the book got angry. ;)

My sister made an adorable Geezer "Dobby" the house elf poppet.

Harry Potter Quidditch Trunk Ribbon Box

Here is a project that I made for a Harry Potter swap on Craftsters a few months back. My partner had a ribbon box on Wist.com so I thought it would be fun to try and make one from an old jewelry box that I had. I decided to make it look like the Quidditch trunk from the first Harry Potter movie.

My Daughter's Leprechaun Trap

Since St. Patrick's Day is approaching, I thought I would share with you my daughters school project. Her 1st grade class had to make a leprechaun trap.

Photobucket


She designed it to where the leprechaun walks up the rainbow and spots the pot of gold. As he walks to the pot he falls through a trap door. Daddy helped her install an alarm on the door so she will know when she has caught one. She put a plexi glass window on the side to see in easily.

She didn't want him to get hurt when he fell, so we made a pillow for him to land on. She also put some Lucky Charm cereal in there in case he got hungry.


Photobucket

She says if she catches one that she wants to wish for a castle!
