Project Runway…the Target edition
Do you watch Project Runway? I’m addicted to it. Inspiration abounds on that show. One of my favorite challenges is where they take the designers to a pet store or dollar store or grocery store and they have to create fabulous fashion with unconventional items.
Wanna a little look-see? Here is the winner of the 99 cent store challenge from episode one.
This gorgeous creation is made of laundry bags and umbrella lining. This dude has talent for breakfast.
Just one more quick one from a past season.
Or is that two words? No, it’s definitely a compound word. Focus, Susan, focus…
Can you even believe this dress was made with birdseed? Exquisite.
Sometimes when I peruse the dollar spot at Target I play my own little version of Project Runway.
Dorky McDorkerson, party of one. 😉
Ready for the latest “episode?”
Let’s head to Tar-jay, shall we?
oooooooooo, hello one dollar bath pouf. Aren’t you cute?
Sorry, but ever since I read that article about what a GERM magnet you are it’s been ixnay on the oufpay. 😉
But we can still be friends.
Let me just do a quick little “sketch” here.
The project runway designers get those way-cool HP tablets for their sketches. But all I need is the bottom of my shopping cart. 😉
Are you pickin up what I’m puttin down? mmmm, hmmm. Wreath. Valentine Wreath.
Come home, gather materials…poufs, hot glue gun, scissors to clip tags. Oops…a wreath form. Don’t have a wreath form. What to do, what to do.
BAM. Piece of cardboard from my Becky Higgins Project Life kit. Bookmark that thought…that’s a whole other post for a whole other day!
Trace a plate and then a smaller plate inside. Cut it out. Hello, free wreath form.
Start hot-glueing the poufs onto the form.
Uh huh. Work it, girl. That mantel is your runway.
Eight dollar Valentine wreath just bursting with color and texture, struttin her poufy stuff on my mantel.
I declare myself the WINNER of this challenge. 😉
