I know, BEST international celebration ever!
Friday, September 19, any buccaneer to enter a participating Krispy Kreme and
talk like a pirate gets one FREE Original Glazed® doughnut.
To the landlubber who dares to wear full pirate attire goes a bounty
of one FREE dozen Original Glazed doughnuts.
So...not being a pirate is out of the question!!!
Start with a plain old t-shirt!
Then mark with a marker where you want to lace it up.
(I used a cropadile to set some eyelets...but you could
just carefully cut a slit and lace it through the holes)
cut the sleeves off the same way for my daughter.
We are HUGE fans of upcycling and refashioning.
This vest had a hole cut into it, just below the pocket.
It was ready to retire as a church vest.
This way it doesn't have buttons and holes showing.
1/4 to 1/2" elastic to fit around the head
I used a sheet of paper to cut a pattern.
Then use a piece of white felt to cut a skull and 2 bones.
Add eyes, nose and mouth holes.
Take the other black piece of felt.
This is going to be the backside.
Cut a small slit a couple inches from the end...big enough for your elastic to slip into.
the other end of the elastic on the other side of the felt hat.
Then Run a band of hot glue all around the outside border of the
hat piece with the elastic tucked inside.
Lay the skull facing up piece over the other piece and press them together.
Doubling the felt like this will make the hat more substantial!
a peg leg, a parrot, gold coins, earrings, mustache, jewelry, a bandana...and for girls a fluffy tutu!
And whatever else you can think of!
The kids wanted to pose with our pirate sword...but remember, no weapons
allowed when collecting your bounty of doughnuts at Krispy Kreme!
