Introduction: Spongebob : Krab's First Dollar

About: I am a software engineer, addicted to props

Anyone remembers that episode where Spongebob and Patrick repaint the house of M. Krab? The episode is Wet Painters. I wanted a Spongebob props and this was one of the simpliest to do so if you're a fan of Spongebob this is for you! The material to use :

  • Bamboo pole
  • Paper
  • Cardboard
  • A background for you frame like in the pictures... ( I used old fiberglass cloth)

Step 1: Cut Your Bamboo

The size of the frame is 8 1/2'' x 11'' (like a normal sheet of paper). The diameter of the bamboo is 1 1/2''. First, cut all the corners in a 45 degree angle.

Step 2: Glue Your Frame

I used hot glue to assemble the frame.

Step 3: Paint Your Background

The only thing I found in my home with a "linear" background was my old fiberglass cloth. So, I cut it with the same dimension of my frame and I painted it in gray. (with spray paint)

Step 4: Glue Your Background

Simply glue your background at the back of your frame

Step 5: First Dollar

Print the first dollar and DON'T FORGET to add the white spot that Spongebob made. ;)

Step 6: Frame Signature

Ok, I forgot to take some pictures here but I used 2 layer of cardboard. I engraved Cap. Krab in the first layer and I glue it to the second. I Paper Mache the result and I painted it in Chrome color.

Step 7: Final Result

An easy DIY project for everyone for cheap. Hope you enjoyed it, any comment is welcome.
