A few months ago, one of my friends gave me a suggestion for a blog post, a challenge if you will. The challenge you may ask? Make clothing and wear it for a blog post...oh, and it had to be made out of food.
In honor of Thanksgiving, a day to be thankful for the many things we have and people we love (and amazing friends who suggest hilarious ideas), and because both the Holiday (and this post) have to do with food, I figured this was the perfect time to share this post.
I may have spent my entire day off hand sewing (with dental floss) this headband, top, and skirt, so there are some small things I'd like to note about creating an outfit out of food.
Putting popcorn on a string is not as easy as I thought it would be. I did find some advice that helped for future use if anyone plans to decorate for the Holidays using popcorn. After you make the popcorn, let it sit out for a day or so-allowing it time to stale actually helps it stay together when you start threading it on vs the crumble I dealt with in my first attempts.
However, when I started to make it, I realized I liked the looks of the cranberries a lot more than the popcorn...so I had a ton of popcorn leftover....which I may have snacked on...and thrown around to make popcorn rain (popcorn+carpet=serious mess FYI).
This actually came out pretty decently considering I had no idea what I was doing. Who knows, this challenge may inspire other challenges.
Thank you Sam for taking great pictures (and dealing with about ten minutes of me throwing popcorn in the air trying to capture it at just the right time-I promise I'll be better next time).
And thank you Clint for your awesome/fun ideas! If anyone has any ideas or "challenges" they think would be fun, feel free to comment or email me!
Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!
