Plastic Man Decoration Ideas

You know Plastic Man's schtick, right? He's a rubbery stretchy guy, but a bit kooky so he's got no qualms morphing his body into bizarre shapes. The thing is, though, while he can take the shape of almost anything, he can't change his coloring. Which means that the object he transforms into almost always displays his red costume and his black & yellow belt. Here's a few covers showing the type of thing I'm talking about...
OK, so with that in mind, you could take pretty much any object, paint it red with black & yellow stripes, and have a custom Plastic Man decoration. You could do lamps, chairs, bookshelves... whatever! I found one licensed shirt that takes this approach...
... but even applying the same idea to a simple board would work...
Not bad, right? I mean, for a simple rectangle, it's kind of neat piece to include around your comics. Of course, if you're a little more artistically inclined, you could put a little bit more effort into it and come up with something like this...
And you could tailor the idea to your own talents. Maybe you could make scarf or a rug if you're better with textiles. What about painting a bed frame, or even just the headboard? Your computer? A clock? A piece of abstract sculpture? Curtains?

C'mon, folks! Get as crazy as Plas! Let's see some great home and lawn decor!
