Well, things have been busy around here with the holidays now upon us. I just wish I could stay home and craft every day! No such luck, but I was able to finally whip up these cute little guys. My sister in law and her family love these characters, and I couldn't find any so I decided I would figure it out and make them.
I have had the plastic ornaments in my stash for a while now, not knowing what to actaully do with them.
The top comes off with a little pull, then just add a bit of acrylic paint and shake it to cover. They had some bubbles at first, but they went away after a few minutes. I let them sit out for a couple of days to dry out, rolling them a couple of times a day to keep them evenly covered.
I found different sized google eyes, silver pipe cleaners and black glitter tape. I decided after this photo to use fake eyelashes for the hair, which was perfect! (Actually, that was my husband's idea, and a good one. I wish I could take credit for that!)
It was a process to figure out how to attach everything, but once I got the glue situation handled, they came together nicely.
I wanted to get them done, and I wasn't confident in my painting abilities, so we printed out the smiles on photo paper, fussy cut them and adhered them. (Also my husband's idea, thank you dear!)
I love how these turned out and my SIL loved them, so mission accomplished!
Happy Holidays, TFL!
