    LED Fairy Light Globes

    I couldn't find the glass ornaments anywhere locally so I found a small-ish fish bowl at Michael's. It was about 4 inches and a bit thicker than the glass ornaments I've seen in the past. Glued walnut to cherry and routed out the openings to accept the globe and battery pack. Velcro’ed the battery pack in with a tape flag to pull it out when batteries need to be changed. Fun and easy project!

    Telescoping Minecraft Creeper Costume

    I took the papercraft template into illustrator (or photoshop if you don't have that) and the I just scaled the paper template until the body was the correct height. Then you just take the ruler tool and measure the width/height off the paper template for the rest of the dimensions. Check to make sure it fits the person who will be wearing the costume. You might need to just tweak it on the fly.

    I took the papercraft template into illustrator (or photoshop if you don't have that) and the I just scaled the paper template. Keep in mind that the costume is telescoping, so you might just wanna figure out the depth of the body (i.e. my daughter is 40" from shoulder to floor so I went with 8" depth and made sure it fit her body with room to move) and then just made 2 units for the body that is 20" and 16" tall. I eyeballed this plan and figured the legs are attached at about 1/3" of the way, so I measured from the bottom of the feet to the top of the body. I also made sure there was at least 3" overlap between the telescoping body parts at the max height (40").

You might need to just tweak it on the fly. You want to make sure the width of the costume (shoulder to shoulder) is appropriate and then that's the size of the head. Really, don't stress too much, eyeball/estimate, have fun making it and your kid will love it!
