Awesome! I hope you'll share your versions when they're done. :D
They came out great!
Thank you. :)
Thanks for featuring my project, CO+K! :D I always wanted to be on the front page.
They came out great! I used nail polish because it makes them a little more opaque, but your Modge Podge worked out really well. :) Thanks for sharing your version.
Cool beans! :) Thank you.
Cool, I hope you post your version(s) when it/they are finished. :)
Yeah, you could go a million places with the basic idea. I've been considering other possibilities, too.
I haven't had a problem. Sometimes metal holds hot glue really firmly. It really depends on the surface you begin with. If someone else's posts have a mirror-smooth finish, they might do well to scratch them up a little.
Très magnifique! I wish I could whip up awesome costumes like this, but I'm not much of a seamstress.
Thank you, Amy.
Try the dollar or 99 cent store. They sometimes have variety packs with small jars in different colors.
That is really well-designed and unique!
Agreed. This is the version I'm favoriting, not the other girl saying it's okay to use nail glue.
Yeah, I agree. Nail glue is basically superglue. Bad idea. That stuff is NOT acid-free NOR non-toxic. You're not even supposed to get on you skin, as it can be a severe irritant. Your gums and enamel? No way.
So I wasn't the only one having that problem. I'm glad I could share my solution with you. Thanks, Risa.
They look really cool! Thanks for crediting me. :)
You bet, Aro. It is easy, I can't believe I didn't think of it sooner.
Thanks, Pam. :)
I was just thinking that what I really need for my costume is bat wings. I was wondering if I could make them. Click CO+K, click Halloween, and here you are!
It's like you read my mind before I even made it up. Thank you!
Hey there it is! It turned out awesome! I think I may try making another one like yours. :)
I want to make a dildo. Just a big ol' strap on with this old belt I have. Show my boyfriend what it feels when someone sneaks in the back door.
That's not true at all, but everything I really want to do has already been said. But I got your attention, didn't I?
This is my favorite photo, which I call Mourning Fog. It's about six and a half years old, taken at Wildwood Cemetary in Bartow, Florida. I was walking my dog and noticed how cool the views were so I started snapping pictures. Imagine how creepy it would have been with a pinhole camera and a long exposure instead of a cheap digital!
Love it. Totally modern, stylish, and professional looking, making it all the better that it's recycled materials.
Cool! I'll look for it. I'm looking forward to seeing your version because I thought either lace or, even better, grommet tape would be perfect.
Thank you, DarkAshHurts. They sell these little caskets at Michael's for a dollar, but they've been running out of late. If you hurry you might still find some somewhere.
Thanks, Monika. :) It's a fun and easy project, I imagine you'll enjoy it.
I walked directly to my stack of magazines and started flipping through and pulling out pages. I think a little polyurethane varnish would make them more durable.
Actually, the really wide stripes are a big part of what I like about it. It's badder that way. :) The colors are perfect, too.
Well that's interesting, TNTish, since it looks absolutely, 100% identical to the AntiCraft Asphyxiation choker.
Let's give credit where it's due, shall we?
I second that! Love those curly, loopy feathers!
@Plan B - The chemical name is potassium bitartrate. It's a crystalline powder that forms in wine casks. It's acidic and used as a stabilizer in foods. It also helps dyes take.
In spite of its name, it's not a cream, but a powder.
Truly a work of art. Thank you so much for sharing it here on CO+K. I'm not worthy!
Great idea, universal appeal, cheap, simple, and excellent results. I would bet actual cash money that this is going to be a featured project.
LOL IRL! This is possibly the funniest how-to I've ever seen on CO+K. I've never planted anything in my life but I had to favorite on principal.
HA! Internet memes: You're doing it right.
I'm more impressed by the fact that your book case is organized by cover color in rainbow order than anything else. O_O Wow!
Very cool. It looks like something out of a fantasy or period piece, maybe Asian or Viking or Medieval.
Really nicely made. This could easily pass for official merchandise. Maybe Jagermeister should make you a merch designer!
This is a clever touch! I think I'll have to try it. Watch, jeans companies will be copying you next week or something. ;)
This is clever. It's keyhole, right? The ruffle at the end goes in the hole like a button and fills it out. This would be great in crochet. Thanks for sharing!
GASP! Brilliant! I feel the same way as Libby and Zombicology. How did I not think of this years ago? I'd love to see this project featured. It's such a simple, clever, innovative idea.
Whoa-ho-ho! That is insanely awesome and creative! Thanks for sharing with everybody.
Really cool idea! Way better than just handing somebody some cash in an envelope.
Wow, this is the best version I've seen, and I'm including my own. Beautiful!
Ha ha ha! I actually laughed out loud when I saw this. So cute, so clever!
Speaking of cutting yourself, couldn't the bottle caps cut your neck? It's really cool but it seems like after you have it put together it might be a good idea to hammer down the caps' edges so they're not pressed against your skin. Wouldn't want you to get cut again. :)
Your kitty is the perfect set piece. :) They look so pretty together.
Oh my gosh, I love the Queen Elizabeth as the Joker image. That's awesome.
I love these charms. They're precious. I was hoping you'd made them so you could tell us how you did it. Where did you get them?
Hi, I saw you posted in the California thread and I just wanted to say your hamster is A-D-O-R-A-B-L-E! :D
This is incredibly well sculpted. I'd ask for a tutorial, too, but I don't think I could pull it off. You're a real artist. :)
This is just adorable! I imagine you'll wind up with some residents very soon.
You're really talented!
Thanks for all the faves! :) I like your style, I hope you start posting projects soon.
He's so cuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuute!
You are insane! I mean that in a good way, this is brilliant.
Really interesting design! The results are great. I live near the beach so this would be pretty doable for me. Thank you!
This is cool beans. Looks really dapper and classy, especially on that sleek-looking black outfit. Thanks for sharing the idea.
These are cute! So are the flat ones. Is there a tutorial to make these somewhere?
Thanks, Olivia, and those who've favorited. I'm not the amazing nail artist a lot of members are, so the compliments mean a lot to me. =)
@Scissor: As per my description, "The covers are faux leather from a checkbook cover, the pages are light paperboard. Everything is painted with a mixture of acrylic craft paint and polyurethane varnish."
I'm not personally familiar, but it was a damn good album to choose. Hot color, awesome graphic. If it sounds as good as it looks, it's no wonder your boyfriend has three copies.
Whoa! These are a wild country craft! Really imaginative; thanks for sharing.
Thanks for sharing your version! I love the square shape, it's totally unique.
Best of luck to you and your husband or partner in your quest to have a baby. I hope you find something that works for you, or nature just decides to be more cooperative.
Not familiar with Emilie Autumn (though I looked her up and she seems really cool), but I love this compact!
This is so clever and fun!
That bottle is awesome! I wish it were available somewhere. What a find.
Love it, love it, LOVE IT! I must have one!
@Elise: Thanks. I liked my first two, I wish I hadn't screwed them up. I don't think that can be salvaged. :( I hope you do try it, Christina made a great tutorial and it was fun.
@Christina: I'm glad you liked my ideas. Your mirror is one of the coolest ideas I've ever seen on CO+K, I really wanted to post the first version!
This is really pretty! Elegant, yet beachy. Love it.
That is really nicely made. Great design and professional-looking. Also... cute!
This is incredibly clever, and your version is excellent. Thanks for sharing it with us.
This isn't just a project, it's a work of art. Thank you so much for sharing your method for making it.
Very nicely made. Thanks for bringing such a nice version of such an impressive design to my attention.
Oh wow! This is such a popular design, a lot of versions have been posted, but I think this might be my favorite Tree of Life. It looks so mystical, but so real.
Totally gorgeous. Looks like a high-end piece of jewelry.
Thanks for sharing your version! It came out great, yours is entirely different from mine or any of the other versions.
It came out great! Thanks for sharing your version. I love your Time Turner, too.
That's interesting! These look so much like crochet to me, I was surprised they're macrame. I didn't know they could be so similar.
Really nice design, they're both pretty and unique.
This is so cute! I've never seen one quite like it, really creative.
Oh wow, this is a real work of art! If I made something like this I'd take short cuts with premade items. ;)
Yay, bronze! I'm still annoyed with the movie makers for using Slytherin silver for Ravenclaw.
@Sonya: This is based on a how to. There's a link just below the description. The original is somewhat different, though, L.B. didn't follow the pattern exactly.
Oh wow, this is a great design! I'd like to see a how-to, too.
I honestly like yours better. You're right, there are some major pluses to the way you made yours, and I prefer the Westie to the pug (although they're both cute). I'm definitely going to make one when I find the right figure.
Is that your baby? D'aw! Such a cute little critter!
Oops, sorry! "You Will Need - patons Yarn bonfire." I didn't see it before I asked. Thanks for letting us know!
I love the colors. What yarn did you use?
Thank you, Emily. I hope you'll make one.
My goodness, isn't he dapper?
OMG, I love your Corgi. She's even cuter with the little dress! Really well designed.
D'aww! That is the cutest photo! Your kitty thinks it's the best, even if you don't. :)
They're really cute but the photos look kind of funny. There's no depth to photos so it looks for all the world like the flowers in the vase in the background is sticking out of the hats. I wasn't sure what I was looking at until I saw the pink hat, where the vase is off-center.
Again, I love the hats, but even in the thumbnail it looks like a huge bouquet of flowers is somehow part of the project. May I suggest a plain background next time, to highlight your project?
Ha! Really well done, it's amazingly convincing. You got the shape just right.
Hey, I don't know if you ever got an answer to your question about "Rainbow Lanterns" by J0, but I recognized the vials. They come from nail art kits to hold rhinestones. I have some that I bought for the vials, and I got the kit for dollar. Hope I've helped. :)
I hope you'll post it when it's finished, Myka. Please feel free to ask any questions about how I made mine.
Good idea! All my jewelry is always getting tangled together, and there's not a jewelry box on earth that can hold all my big ol' costume jewelry. This looks great for bracelets, maybe even a second one for large hoop earrings (I don't wear them but so many people do). Thanks!
What a cute, simple idea! Better than your average snowglobe. :)
Thanks, Chelsea. If you do make your own, I hope you'll share your version here on CO+K.
I love this! It's precious. My mom chews nicotine gum in packs like this, I may have to do this for her for fun (even though we're into December now).
@Soccerqueen: Thanks for the awesome idea! ^-^
@April - If you want to learn, this would be an excellent beginner's project, once you learn to work in rounds and how to increase and decrease.
@Pammerz - Thanks! I know the feeling, it was a hard choice. I decided to settle on something thematic and recognizable rather than choosing my personal favorites. (Although Poe certainly is.) Best of luck on your project!
Oh wow! The Loni by Iron Fist in red. Those shoes are on my Christmas list. :)
These. Are. Awesome. I've never seen anything like them. I would love to see these featured.
That is wicked. It looks like something straight out of a horror movie.
Really nicely made and adorable. Didn't have a clue what a axolotl was until I Googled it. Well, now I know, and I think you've officially created the world's cuddliest salamander! :) I'm sorry to hear they're near extinction.
I think your version is actually nicer, with the seed pearls instead of the plain beads. Great job!
Precious! I love dragons and I loved that movie. If I could sew for beans, I'd go for it. I guess I'll just have to admire yours. :)
I wouldn't be surprised if this is featured. Really nice tutorial, really nice results.
Is there a pattern somewhere for this cute little guy? I'm in love with him!
These are precious and quite artistic, in my opinion. They have a wonderfully folksy quality, woodsy and retro, but owls are very in style right now.
I've never seen negative comments here on CO+K before, not even on genuine disasters, let alone something as popular as this. It says more about the commenters than your project, Andrea.
These are magnificent.
Nicely executed! If I may ask, did you work the cone from top (opening) to bottom (tip) or from bottom to top? It looks like bottom to top but I'm not certain. You got a really nice point.
This is awesome. Really clever idea, really well executed. I wouldn't be surprised if you could sell these. I love those Peace Tea cans, too, they've got great designs.
D'aww! She's really professional looking.
Perfect job! Instantly recognizable, for half a second I thought the right was a photo of Tim Curry. (No offense!)
A how-to for next Halloween would be great.
Thanks for the fave. :) I'm really proud of my choker and I was hoping someone would like it! Hope you'll be coming up with new creepy projects soon.
My favorite singer has a real one that he wears sometimes. (A little disappointed in him.) I like the look of it but there's no place for fur in my life. This looks great, now I can have one that's cruelty-free AND inexpensive!
I agree with Modesty Fashions. This is really instructive, clever, and professional. It has "featured project" written all over it.
Really, really cute. I love the lace trim and the fabric.
D'awww! I wanna poke his little belly!
This is really excellent. It came out great!
Wow, thank you! I'm really flattered. :)
Cute and clever!
Hi, thanks for your nice comment about the Felix Felicis necklace. I hope you'll share your version here on CO+K when you get the chance. =)
I really hope you'll post your version here on CO+K, Sunny. :) I'd love to see it!
I hope you find that pattern; this is incredible! Best amigurumi dragon I've seen.
Thanks for your nice comments and faves! You're really sweet. ^-^
Thank you, Smiles. :)
Thank you, Sparkles and Smiles through tears. When your versions are done, I hope you'll post them here on CO+K so we can see them! :)
I love the sardonic look on Holly's face. :D LOL!
Ha! When I saw him, I actually LOL'd. He's just so precious sitting on his nanners. ^-^
Another tip: Mineral oil is basically petroleum jelly in liquid form, so it can be used for many of these things. For instance, I use it in my hair, especially the ends, and it improves the texture enormously. (In fact, it's the only thing that works.)
Baby oil also works, as it's scented mineral oil.
This is excellent. Could you explain how it's made? It looks like ribbon first twisted, then coiled, but I can't be sure.
Really cool design. Modern, but not too cold, dark, but not morbid. I love it.
Oh, look. The link to the deleted tutorial is on Ruby Mine's profile!
Ooh, relief. I saw a version of the Chan Luu bracelet and I had to see the tutorial. Thanks, Charlotamy and Ruby Mines!
Hmm! The project yours is a version of says it hasn't been published yet. But yours is one of eleven versions. I guess it got unpublished. :( That's too bad, this is so awesome! I really wanted to see the tutorial.
I too, love the eclectic selection of beads you chose and the way you arranged them. The elegantly naturalistic style is also wonderful.
Really cool idea. This would be excellent for travel or anyone without much storage space.
These are adorable. Two of my favorite things in the world are crochet and dragons. A pattern would be awesome if you'd be willing...?
Very clever, creative idea. I've admired these clutches before. This is the way to finally have one.
All your dessert earrings are incredible. I swear I'm getting hungry, they're so realistic. (And adorable!)
These are incredibly clever.
Aw, that bites that people are calling you resellers. They sell a lot of this style of earring at things like street fairs. They seem to make them by the ton in Mexico. (I live in Southern California and see them constantly.) Yours are especially excellent, but I'm afraid people can't tell your home-crafted pieces from the mass-produced ones. Best of luck to you!
Oh my gosh! I have packet of tiny chess pieces set aside right now for exactly this! I was even planning on making them the same way (with a heated needle). I was just thinking of going to make some while I was scrolling through the earrings here on CO+K and I found this. Ooh, weird!
I need to stop looking at your work. The mind-blowing awesomeness is making me feel inferior.
Really clever idea. :)
This is super-cute. It's simple but well-designed, and it could easily be done in either knit or crochet. Thanks for sharing it!
@Laodice: I think the link that Milan published must have changed since she posted it. It doesn't have all the instructions you need. Try this link for full instructions on weaving and sewing:
It's excellent. Super professional-looking. The rose is amazing. I'm with Alicia, a how-to would be a hit!
Wow! Sexy and wicked. I love it.
It's really beautiful but don't you think safety might be an issue? Eyelash glue is strong but sharp plastic shards placed then glued around the eyes seems a bit hazardous to me.
Ha! I was going to friend you, too, but you beat me to the punch. Apparently, great minds really do think alike. -_^
You didn't have to do that, Debbie, but I thank you very much. :)
Nice version! Yours is the only left-handed one.
It looks really good. It's one of the best versions posted, and that you did it by hand makes it that much more impressive. :)
Led Zep forever! ^-^ This is wicked.
Very cool. Strange suggestion, but it's just who I am: Adam Lambert, female version. :)
Oh wow. Those are awesome! I've never seen lockets like those before. Like yaddayadda, I'm wondering where you got them.
I really love how it came out. I bet the acrylic paints dried faster, too. Thank you for sharing your version!
Thank you for the nice complement. :)
Hi, thanks for commenting on the Felix Felicis necklace. Just to let you know, I answered your question (or tried my best).
Well, I'm familiar with two Michael's stores and in both cases the dollar bins are near the registers. Basically just stacked bins of one-dollar items like stationary and and ribbon and all kinds of little craft items. It's not in a specific section. If you go to Michael's and ask, they should be able to direct you to them.
I got these bottles recently so hopefully they still have them, and carried them at yours. But keep your eyes peeled! I've got some really, really tiny glass vials I got in a nail art kit filled with tiny rhinestones. You never know where you might find a bottle.
Oh wow, it looks amazing! Thanks for posting your version. :)
I've been trying to figure out how to do this for a while. It occurred to me a long time ago for this t-shirt I have. Your version seemed to work out really well!
That is ridiculously adorable. I love what you titled it!
@Nikki: Thanks! If there's another fantasy series you like, maybe you could tailor it to that?
Awesome! Thanks so much for posting your version. It came out really great. I like how you put the chain through an eyelet screw in the cork.
@sigrunelise You wrote the best Harry Potter cosplay craft tutorial ever. I'm really glad you like my version of it!
Thank you so much for your compliment and your amazing wand tutorial. :)
@Seth Yeah, I saw those when I was doing some research for making these. They're not at all what I was looking for, and I think they've been discontinued.
That is absolutely the best hamster plushie I have ever seen. It's so real, and yet even cuter.
OMG I love your avatar. I wanna pinch its little ratty cheeks!
Whoa, seriously? That. Is. Awesome. Thanks for the tip!
Yeah, so I gathered when I was trying to figure out where your vial came from. I already kind of had that impression, but it seems like it's bigger than I realized; a full-on Rocky Horror following.
I remember thinking one of the characters was, like, INSANELY sexy when I saw a clip one time and I just looked up about a million pictures of him (GraveRobber) and added the movie to my Netflix queue.
Your pretty little blue vial has really gotten me interested! =)
In case anybody else, like me, was wondering what fiction's mythology these are from, it's Repo! The Genetic Opera.
Really cool vials but I wasn't familiar with the movie.
I'm sorry to correct you but it's not knit, it's braided.
I love the jelly bean for the beak. Really clever, really presh!
This looks so much like the one I designed, except mine is gray and crochet'd. The design is nearly identical. Really nice work! :)
I thought that looked like Mr. Todd in the thumbnail. LOL @ "perfect for my precious rubies."
Presh! I may just have to try this.
This looks like a simple and cool way to fold an origami envelope, but you, eh, forgot a few steps. It's kind of a beginner's project, written as though it's for someone advanced who knows origami. I don't suppose you'd consider adding all of the steps?
Pleats! What an awesome detail. I think I may have to try that.
Wicked. That's definitely one worth trying.
I was just browsing the Alchemy Gothic website and found their original. Yours is just as good or better, and won't set you back sixty bucks. I will be making one.
Good, then my substitute is as convincing as I thought. You're right, using the real thing wouldn't make sense.
In reply to your comment on my profile - Yes, I am thinking of joining the swaps. Right now I'm trying to get up some credibility on Swap Bot but at some point I'm sure I'll join in on something here on CO+K. Why, did you have a suggestion? Or just asking?
Love it! This is wicked. I've actually been looking up mini hats but for some reason this one didn't come up in my searching, so it didn't come to my attention until your favorited one of my projects.
Thank you for your nice comment on the Pierced Chopsticks/Hair Sticks tutorial. =)
That is so wicked. Don't have any skulls on hand but I rather wish I did.
I am absolutely insane for your stuff. You've lit my imagination on fire. You're a true artist.
It's so eye-catching. Really pops.
Thanks for accepting my friend request. I love your ideas, I want to make sure I see all your future projects.
Thanks for your nice comment about the Pierced Chopsticks/Hair Sticks! If you make them, I hope they come out just right. Oh, and if you feel like it, thank your boyfriend for me, too.
Precious! It makes me think of ragtime music and ice cream parlors and nickelodeons. All those quaint, early 20th century Americana type things.
This. Is. Awesome. My brain is exploding because I don't have the materials to make one right this instant and can't get them. (It's midnight.) I know what I'm doing tomorrow.
Thanks for giving me my very first comment on my black version of your rose! And thank you even more for posting this tutorial. You're brilliant!
Thank you all so much!
@Katharine - LosingMyMind2Music is right. Black spoons.
@EVEnl - Thank you so much, especially for your tutorial. I like the way it looks, too, but unfortunately it's really too heavy to be a pin.
Wow! Where did you get leopard print spoons? (Or, gasp, did you paint them?)
Love it with the faux fur. Even better detail than the original.
Having the same problem as Katie and Krystyl. I tried it several times and with different kinds of threads. Same scrunched-together result each time. I'm hoping beating wire will work better. It's so cute!
So the thumbnail photo isn't representative of the finished product, right? Are there any photos of the finished doll?
