DIY Inspiration: espensive tape ($19 per roll) for lightweight props and costumes. Designed by mmiinn and sold here. First saw the trunk straps tape at superslyskillzmcfly here (a blog I follow).
truebluemeandyou: I can also see this tape on journals, shoe boxes (turned into storage boxes), etc… I wish the rolls were smaller because in theory you could just use the image - but then I guess you could also print out the image on your printer and decoupage it too - but not as cool.
DIY Halloween Costume Contest Trophies. Dollar Store finds make this a clever and cheap idea if you’re having a Halloween Party. Tutorial from Very Vegan Holiday here.
DIY Realistic Life Size Spider Props (it placed in their 2010 Halloween Contest). Tutorial from Instructables here by moGuyver. I’m not sure I’d be able to do this in an hour but moGuyver writes:
Try out this design - using little more than scraps of paracord and wire, you can create a lifelike spider in an hour or less.
DIY Inspired Geronimo Balloons (on the right). Found at another favorite site Camille Styles here. Geronimo Balloons found here (on the left) go for $55-$125 a piece for a 36” balloon with gorgeous ribbons, hand cut paper and fancy frills. I love these DIY inspired ones because the Camille Styles site tells you where you can actually buy 36” balloons and how they made their balloons for a photo shoot.
