Default Taaaankks (hah they dont look so smart when you have tank traps)



For people who make tank traps using ice cube trays that's all good and a great way to do it, but imagine this you've just had a massive party and theres loads of used party poppers everywhere, (this is where it gets fun)
MAKE TANK TRAPS OUT OF THEM!!!!

Here's how you do it, get a normal used party popper cut down one side and re tape together with masking tape, after you've done about 5-6 of these tape them together in a triangle position(so it wont fall over) . next get some plaster and make up a nice sloppy mix, this should then be put inside each party popper just below the rim leave to dry for 1:30 hrs remove the tape and re-open the popper and her presto a tank trap .

if the plaster has gone a little wrong DONT WORRY this will add to the effect of it lookin war torn even if they snap glue it back together in a weird way to make it look like its about to collapse.
all that's left is to paint them and then block some big ugly soldier killing tanks for a while
