Ben 10 Omnitrix Eat Your Heart Out!!

Bear wanted a Ben 10 watch. Of course he does. But we said he couldn't till he was 4 years old. He has been asking every morning if he is 4 yet and insists he is a big boy.
I have never watched a full episode of Ben 10 but it's about 10 year old boy who has a watch and can turn into an Alien...hmmm....

So we compromised!! Lets face it, I am not going all the way into Kmart to buy a piece of plastic when I can make him his very own. While he is 3 I can still get away with making him things so I did. When he is older I know I wont get away with it.

Why make one when I can make 3...

Nice and easy and he doesn't have to wait and keep asking... I am an awesome Mummy!! Kudos to me...hehe

All I used was a thick cardboard roll and cut it into the desired thickness.
I sewed on the green part to the black part using material from a black t-shirt and a green t-shirt.
My hot glue gun is my new found friend and we like each other a lot.
Velcro or elastic to secure...

This was my reference material... Bear did ask for buttons to push but I had to draw the line somewhere.


  1. Steph, now all ypu need to do is call it an 'omnitrix', and it's even better. Good job!

  2. Your hot glue gun? Well, it's all in the family ain't it. Someday maybe I will give you back MY sander! nice one on the Ben 10, better for the environment!

  3. Wow, aren't you clever! I love my glue gun too, anything is possible with a glue gun.

  4. Very very cool!!
    I'd say it's even better than the plastic manufactured one!
