Roller derby trophies part II

So if you missed the post about last seasons trophies, go here

Well we had a mini season for the beginning of this year 
I wound up making 1 trophy for MVP while my teammate, Tamale made the other 2

Here is how I did it..

I found this tutorial for these glasses with clay handles

so I painted my cup silver and took a piece of wood from Michaels and painted it 'Paign blue (my team) and added white stars (our thing) than started on the skate which is from the crayola clay magic

Once the skates dried I painted the skates to be a little more accurate and realistic

Added a few extra details and another skate and this is end product

What do you think?

This post will be linking to these blogs this week

roller derby trophies part 1

So last year (I know, I am catching up at a snail's pace) I was asked to make our teams end of the year party trophies for derby after seeing these halloween trophies

The halloween trophies were spontaneous and the dollar store and pinterest were to blame.

The trophies I decided to make were along the same lines, just using barbies instead of skeletons. I took the barbie and shaped her using a heat gun and attached her to a wooden stand. We did use some wire to keep her upright that spray painted her gold.

Once she was standing I added skates on her feet using clay and mini poly beads for the wheels. I had found these packs of miniature barbie accessories which included a helmet that i painted blue and glittered.

What do you think? I love these little things. Stay tuned for whats coming this season. 


herb it!

I posted this on face book what seems like forever ago, but heres the tutorial

Start with your plants in a pot

We used wire to tie the pots to the pallet, I twisted the wire around the pot as shown above

Tied to pallet 

and arranged how ever you like

(If you are staining or painting your pallet I suggest doing it before you hang your plants)

I stained mine, than stenciled each name next to the plants.

Finished and added sealant.

What do you think? I love it.
