Rewind to Christmas

So I’m a month late….
Better late then never!
I didn’t make too much this year in the way of Christmas presents. The two main things I made were Mickey Mouse Wreaths for my boyfriend’s relatives and a Rock Band/Guitar Hero guitar stand for my boyfriend.

Let’s start with the wreaths. There are 4 different Mickey wreaths—each with a different theme.

The silver one:

Now there’s the guitar stand. My boyfriend (and admittedly I) are obsessed with Rock Band and Guitar Hero. He owned 2 guitars at Christmas, but I knew he wanted a 3rd. His mother always complains that his guitars (and their wires) are always all over the floor, so I designed a stand to keep them off the floor, neat, and protected. I drew the plans, and my dad helped me assemble it. The base and main pole for the stand are octogonal, and 2 dowels were used for the arms. Four rubber 2inch hooks were added to hold the guitars and microphone. The whole thing was spray panted black when done.

And some “in use” shots:

All this talk about being obsessed with Rock Band reminded me that I also made us matching “band” shirts using the Rock Band logo. I’ll have to get some pictures of that and post them too. They’re pretty cool.
