Engagement Party: Bring in the troops!

I have been having fun coming up with fun creepy decorations for my sister's horror moved themed engagement party. So when I saw THIS, I figured I could use a similar technique to make a wall plaque.

I got about 50 plastic Army guys and arranged them in a glass pie plate:

I "baked" them at 350 and kept checking them every 5-10 minutes until they were melted together but still recognizable. These ones took about 35-40 minutes because they were a really hard plastic.
This just delights the evil sadistic child in me so I may do this again but in a bigger scale. :) One thing I failed to do was open a window so my kitchen smelled of poisionous plastic fumes until I realized I needed to pop one open.

I will take a picture of the whole plaque at the party in a couple weeks. :)

Got something to say? Then I wanna hear it! But if it's mean or an ad that doesn't fit with my blog theme, it may not stay for long. Just sayin'. :) And sorry about the word verification. I'm just tired of spambots invading my happy place. :P
