DIY Tentacle Earrings Results

These took about five minutes to make, plus the time to bake. I'm really happy with how they've turned out. I've sold two pairs already. They're just like, pretty awesome. 
 Oh yeah baby, taken with my phone in a mirror. Got really fancy with this one. 
 Side note- I think the logo is really poorly placed on this Santa Cruz shirt. 
 They're just made with Polymer Clay.

 Do you want to talk about how great my hair is? I think we do...
And then I just played Xbox all night.

DIY Stencil Shirts

I'm just really really into Doctor Who right now, ok?

 Yeah that says Don't Blink in Gallifreyan.

I'm the Grinch of Valentine's Day

I really and truly think it is the dumbest, whiniest, manufactured by girls to make their boyfriends pay attention to them day ever.
That being said.
This one was pretty good. 
But not because it was Valentine's Day because that would be stupid. 
Really stupid. Who cares?
It was good because I got to go see Between the Buried and Me with my new friend Charlie and it was awesome. Hadn't seen them since 2008.
And like ok, he made me this adorable thing and got me 2 adorable gifts and ok ok ok FINE, I guess Valentine's Day isn't quite as awful.

Free People Inspired Scarf

Using this tutorial from Rock Mosaic and some fabric I had lying around.

Only I made mine a circle scarf and way chunkier than the original two. Because it has been really cold in Colorado the post few days.

DIY Weeping Angel

Oh, yes I did. 
 Don't blink. 
 Shit you'll need-
Craft Foam
Hot Glue Gun
Marker or some shit
Stone looking Spray Paint
And some sort of base and some sort or stick
 Ok so first, hack off the barbies hair because it will just get in the way. Then cut the arm at the elbows (I know it was weird). Then make your base and find something you can glue to it's but so it'll stand up. BTW there is no such thing as too much glue with this project. 
 I'm assuming you've cut out the wings by now and added texture using glue. Attach those and her arm in the upright position. 
 The hair and dress were the hardest part. Because I kept burning myself. Cover the entire head with glue, really get all that hair down. And then yeah I made my barbie look fat in this dress. I don't make clothes. I really didn't know where to start. 
 Then, take that shit outside and spray paint the hell out of it. Also, texture spray will slide off and take forever to dry. No one told me, but I'm telling you.

I'm wearing a crown, therefore I am a princess.

Because who doesn't want to be a princess?
Buy a wore crown from here or see how to make one here.
I made this in the dark while watching Game of Thrones because I got tired of sewing.

DIY Galaxy Skirt

Much like the DIY Space Bag Project I didn't take pictures of the process. And I didn't have any bleach so I went about this with all paint. I'm pretty happy with the results but will probably make another one using bleach, I'll properly document those steps in case anyone wants to see them. 

 Yeah, this is my brother's very messy room. He stole the mirror and didn't want to help take pictures of this. He's mad because I use all the bandwidth to watch Doctor Who and Game of Thrones online, so he's a little pissy when I ask him for help.

Tassel Scarf Inspiration

I actually made this scarf months ago after seeing the project on A Beautiful Mess. And then I just kind of forgot about it till now. 

I really don't like what's happening with my face in these, but it was cold and snowy and I wasn't wearing shoes. Be sure to really attach the tassels well.
