Happy Halloween!! I'm a huge fan of this fun holiday! And it is so much more fun to see it through the eyes of my kids! Here's the project my husband and I worked on all day on Saturday. Jack insisted on being a "homemade" robot this year. We had a great time putting this together. Most of the stuff was from around the house. The colorful "buttons" on the front actually light up!! There's a battery pack on the inside of the box! Also, we stripped the reflectors off of a couple old bikes too. So here's a costume that will be safe as he walks around in the dark trick or treating!!
The helmet is (obviously) a mesh colander that we embellished with some jumbo brads to look like buttons. I had some wire from a wreath project from last Christmas and just attached a bike reflector with some hot glue. Check out the picture of the helmet close-up. Laying on the floor behind Jack is a little Woody from Toy Story (Joey)! The whole thing turned out pretty cute, I think! And he got a ton of compliments at his parade at school! I think that made him even more excited!
Stay tuned for a new card tomorrow. Today is my dear friend and upline's birthday! Happy Birthday Niki!! (Must be such a fun birthday to have!!) I will see her tomorrow, so after that I can post her card.
