Steampunk Junk Hat and Bracelet

Finally, I am getting a chance to get this out. I have been trying to finish this project all week and now I can say it is done. Haunted Design House has a Steampunk Junk challenge going on. To be honest I originally was not going to do this challenge because I am not familiar with Steampunk, but that made it all the more interesting for me to try this challenge.

So I had all of these items on hand and they were just waiting to be made into something:

I used these items to create my Steampunk Junk Hat and Bracelette:

  • large coffee can
  • lid from ice cream bucket
  • outside case to the First Aid waterproof adhesive tape
  • Antique Gold spray paint
  • Brown spray paint
  • white lace (that I stained with coffee and tea)
  • metal keys (Michael's)
  • metal buttons (I had in my stash)
  • paper flower (Michael's)
  • black velvet ribbon
  • metal bits (Michael's)
  • brads

The Bracelet:

The Hat:

 And here is me wearing the hat and bracelet:

I am entering my Steampunk Junk Hat and Bracelet into the following challenge and linky party:
After all that, I really enjoyed this challenge and I can now say I learned what Steampunk is and I have to say, I like it!!! Thanks for stopping by and checking out my project.
