Make Your Own Pirate Kit #NationalTalkLikeAPirateDay

I have been blessed with some awesome people in my life.  One of which is my very first niece.  I still remember the very first time I saw her and held her!  That beautiful baby stole my heart!  I will admit, I’ve told that story and/or thought about that moment so many times I feel like I must be somewhere close to 80 but that’s okay, it was great!

pirate-girls-diy-pirate-kitThis year the little beauty graduated high school this year and has started her first year in college.  (Could you guess I’m proud?) So, as her graduation gift, I promised to send care packages as long as she is in college.  Should she decide to go all the way to her doctorate my husband is gonna have to get a second job to support our boxes!  Especially since I keep wanting to go overboard on what I buy for them.  LOL.  Whatever, what the husband doesn’t know will not hurt him (unless he finds out, then I might! haha).  All jokes aside, Uncle is very proud as well and happy to share this ongoing graduation gift!

pirate-kitAll that being said, since National Talk Like a Pirate Day is September 19th, I decided that she needed a Pirate box.  Long John Silvers and Dunkin’ Donuts both have freebies if you come in and talk like a pirate and an even better freebie if you dress up!  With this in mind, I got to work researching and trying to find what I should make or put in her box.  She has a love for Johnny Depp so a few of them are related.  I thought I’d share the links and pictures with you.  Hope you enjoy!

To Make the Hook

To make the hook, take a plastic cup (like you get from takeout) and spray paint it black.  While it’s drying, cut the shape of a hook out of cardboard leaving a longish piece at the bottom to fold in to help it keep from coming out (plus this way you can hold on to it with your fingers).  Wrap the cardboard in tin foil.  Cut a small slit into the end of the cup and insert your hook, folding the extra inside to one side.  Commence with piracy!

To Make the Sash

Cut a piece of cloth about 8-12 inches wide and long enough to wrap around and still have plenty to hang down.  You don’t have to sew it or anything, it’s supposed to look rough!  Tie around your waist so that there is plenty hanging down!

I’d love to hear yer thoughts, adventures or anything about Pirates!
