Hourglass and World book day

I made this hourglass prop for world book day for a Discworld death costume. It's mostly made from 6mm ply but the 'glass' sections are made from 2l fizzy bottles and the 'sand' is rice died blue. It's a little bit sticky because the centre hole is a little bit small but that's actually quite good that someones entire 'life' doesn't pass from the top section to the bottom section instantly.

Hazel decided to go to school dressed as Little Lou and the Woolly Mammoth. All I had to do was make a sew a pocket onto her dress, my wife had the clever inspiration to make the Woolly Mammoth from a knitted poncho and a dozen elastic bands.
