Halloween Costumes 2012: The Pirate Ship

So my little pirate needed a ship.
We ordered new patio furniture about a month ago.  A love seat, two chairs, and a coffee table all got shipped in one box, one really giant box.  It was quite cumbersome for getting off our front porch but that giant 5' x 5' box is perfect for things like castles, forts, and pirate ships!

This pirate ship is just cardboard, paint, a bit of fabric, and a lot of hot glue.  I drew my ship on the cardboard and cut it out.  Then I painted the ship with acrylic paints.

I made canons out of paper towel rolls and attached them with hot glue.

The Jolly Roger flag is made of felt, I cut out the skull and cross bones and hot glued it on.

The sail is a scrap of white fabric, again hot glued in place.

To attach the cardboard to the wagon, I glued some yarn on the back and covered it with cardboard to make sure it stayed in place.

Then it simply ties on.

I can't wait for trick-or-treating tomorrow! Check out my kids Halloween costumes HERE and HERE.

  5. The rights conceded by letter rather vested in the workplace of the commander of the ship that was planned to be utilized as the privateering vessel; the individual chief practiced those rights as an office holder.arena boost wow
