Wordless Crazy Hair Day Tutorial

Hi Knitters,
TC has crazy hair day at school. This is what we came up with!




There you have it!

The blue ice art piece from the last post is in Family Fun magazine. It may be on their site. I got a lot of questions about how to make one. TC made it at Girl Scouts so I don't have much more information than that for you. It was frozen in a tin pie plate with a cup set in for the center hole. There were colored ice cubes set in. That's all I know. It is still a beautiful sight hanging on our tree.

Good Friday to you all:)
best, susie

The taping of the cup to the head is cracking me up. How fun!

GREAT IDEA!!!!!! Maybe this is the way to add "lift" to my flat hair.

That is a riot! Very creative!

I remember crazy hair days when Em was still in school and they were too funny.

Have a great weekend!

T.C.'s "crazy hair" is awesome. So much can be done with those plastic red cups and tape. They have been the essentials for many a costume, at this house. I spy a table with a very interesting project and some gorgeous green yarn, no? Can you tell what might be going on?

So clever. Storing this trick away for fancy dress in the future. Nice one!

Oh, I like it! Put a halo on her head and you've got Lady Gaga...

Quick! Knit some of her hair up in "Marley Topper" fashion to go on top of her "do"!

PS: How is your house always so clean?

Love the hair! Also, here's the link to the Winter Sun Catcher: http://familyfun.go.com/crafts/winter-sun-catcher-824949/ It took me a while to find it so I figured I'd save others the trouble.. :)

How fun; I thought in the beginning you were going to cut her hair off.

Ashley Schott said...

I swear I did this EXACT same thing for crazy hair day in high school! LOL How funny! She looks adorable:)

Sara in WI said...

TC is just the cutest! You could do anything with her hair and she'd still be cute. (Do you think you could do that with my hair? lol)

Dear Susan:
I really do have to complain. Your Heart on a String Hat needs a warning label: "Seriously addictive - take precautions!"

Apparently it is I treacherous to combine knitting on your hat pattern with watching the Olympics. Including the Heart on a String Hat I'm now 8 glorious hats into a serious problem! I can't stop! I'm blaming it ALL on you! Now I know why you ended up publishing an entire book of hats and still create more hat patterns. Is there help for us?

I caaaan't stop! And I feel number nine coming up any minute....

You can do this with larger containers as well. WE used a huge water bottle.
