first go to walmart looking for the Star Wars Millenium Falcon Transformer (MFT)...the one where Han Solo and Chewbacca snap together to make, yep you got it the Millenium Falcon...You will not find it however, because apparently it is this years sleeper "tickle me Elmo". Everyone you ask will say "I just saw one at ......" and I go there, but they are gone....ok off subject...anyway...since you are there at walmart, you'll of course pick up about $100 worth of "stuff" that you need because it's there...kind of like when you go to target...and inspiration will find you between the vases and the silk flowers....so gather some styrofoam balls, I used 2 1/2 inch, some pretty ribbon, some clear pebbles (the kind you put in the bottom of a vase) and your (low temp) glue gun.....because the "Amy Factor" always means an accident is just around the corner.
I'm all about 5 ingredients or less, in cooking, crafting and pretty much all aspects of life...anything that requires more than 5 steps just gets too complicated and makes my brain too noisy.
Using your glue gun cover the styrofoam ball with the pebbles...
As my models, Britain 12, and Landon 9 are showing you it is really quite easy. I'm am so loving the time that I'm getting with my boys while we make stuff, they've never really been interested in it before. Tie a ribbon around it, secure with glue and then I tied another one and secured to hang it from the tree. These do end up kind of heavy. They catch the light beautifully though.
I also have a layout for Christy's prompt #15
I haven't been around as often as I'd like. I, like everyone else I think, am a little overwhelmed right now with the holidays, work, kids, husband...I am off tomorrow though and I hope I'll get some more stuff done. That is between running my husbands errands, laundry,usual boring house stuff.
I snapped this picture of Cocoa today when I got off work.
oh and ps..I gave in and got the Star Wars MFT from ebay, now I just have to hope it gets here in time.
