My Ornament (turned Squid)

Introduction: My Ornament (turned Squid)

With only 30 minutes to play at the Instructables workshop in San Francisco, I found a balloon, wrapped it in string and sprayed it with starch and paint.  The intention was a shell of painted string after the balloon is popped.  But I didn't let it dry enough and this is the result.  A squid lookin thing.  So I sewed on some buttons and ran with it.  My coworker Sharla is the lucky recipient (I was late to our meeting and it was a token for forgiveness).

Thanks for the holiday party Instructables!  That was fun and I'm coming back to play.
