You will need the following:
wooden CD crate
4 wooden discs for wheels I painted black
assorted fabrics colors and textures to cover crate
You'll need to have a theme to accessorize the float. I picked my aunt's miniature shop, located on Royal Street in the heart of the French Quarter, The Black Butterfly. I had to think about butterflies - they started off as caterpillars, so I will attempt to make a caterpillar from the green taffeta and place on the front of the float. Here are other items I will add to the float:
stick on flowers found in the kids craft section of JoAnn's
black suede scrapbooking paper and a butterfly punch
The project items cost about $35. Let's see how long it will take me to get creative!
