We entered the "Bucket of Junk" contest at the fair this year.
10 participants were all given a bucket of junk and had to make something out of it!
A very fun challenge!
This is what we started out with:
Looks like a pile of junk to me!!!!!
We decided to make a 4-Her (with pigtails!), a pig and a fence with flowers.
We started with the pig.
Mike did a lot of the welding for us.
It was a whole family project!
Some of the small pieces.
We did lots of flowers and even a 4 leaf clover.
The beginning of our 4-Her!
Katy and I were told quite often "HOLD THIS!"
Our cute 4-Her coming together!
One of my favorite parts of the whole thing is this little bug.
There were lots of "discussions" about the correct position of things.
Almost done with the welding!
And our finished project:
Our pig got a purple ribbon!
The pig even has a curly tail.
We ended up with 3rd place at the fair.
There were some really cute entries!
We had so much fun we're going to do it again next year.
I now have my own welding helmet though and will be learning to weld!
