Tangent: I went to party city with Betty the Bakeress (Button's and my sister-in-law-ish) because she wanted to bring a gift basket in to work for a co-worker, she's so thoughtful. And I saw some Super Mario Bros tin candy containers. I've had a power-up mushroom for ages and so couldn't resist getting the 1-up mushroom, the star, and a ? box. I have plans in mind for something awesome with the mushrooms but I didn't have any specific purpose for the star or 1-up box.
So today when I was cleaning and realized I needed a doorstop I decided it would be a perfect ridiculous/temporary craft for the ? box. Making a doorstop this way seriously is so easy I feel a bit silly posting about it but here goes.
Hollow item of your choice
You have the extensive list of mats? :D
Put the pennies in the hollow item. Since I did just want kind of a temporary solution I didn't want to use sand. I figured it would leak all over the place and also I just didn't have any.
Now just find a poorly hung door and voila!
So easy it's not even a legitimate craft, kind of like this recipe (hilarious comments FTW) but it sure looks ADORABLE as my doorstop. :D
One big plus to this "craft" is that the possibilities are almost endless. Sally forth and make doorstops my friends!!
UPDATE: OMG guys!! I just had a stroke of brilliance! Additional materials: Thumbtack, plastic quilt thread.
I tied the quilting thread around a thumbtack and then looped the thread around the ? box a few times and hung it from the ceiling!!! I am immensely pleased with it! Much more legitimate this way. Let's see how long I resist punching it. :D
