October! Yippee! Halloween is approaching all to quickly. Time to think about decorations, costumes, spooky stories and creating a general ambiance of awesome. In this installment of Steampunk Weekend DIY, we have some mechanical invites to tell folks about the approaching Halloween party; new uses for old wood ladders (nothing spookier than rustic tools), magical skull pendants and sky pirate gloves to complete the ensemble.
Magical Skull Pendants
I like that Halloween can make anything kinda’ cute. This tutorial has plenty of pictures and descriptions on putting together a quick, easy and fun project.
Overhead Wood Ladder Thing
The Walking Dead’s previous season just hit Netflix. I’ve been binge watching. Hanging racks are creeping me out right now. I wound up on a page with a bunch of ladder projects (because…internet?) and spent most of the time just saying, “ew.” Then this project showed up and I said, “well, there’s a bit of a post-apocalypse charm to this one.” The tutorial has a bunch of really good ideas on to secure this safely above a table where children will eat.
Sky Pirate Gloves
Complete with a list of materials and process. Fun way to spend a couple of hours.
