ok today is a gonna be a long detailed tute.
i dunno 'bout you, but i usually skip
to just looking at pics on long detailed posts and tutes.
call it lazy, impatient, or too busy
i claim all of the above.
and although this is seen as a rather daunting task,
i must say that i had a lot of fun with it
and LOVE the results.
perhaps you will too?
here we go...
ok so just raid your house and all craft stores of everything and you're good to go.
don't forget the mortgage payment too
(just kidding!-seeing if you're paying attention)
i got those jars at marshall's cuz they were plain and my mason jar lids fit right on them.
you can use whatever jar you want though.
it was love at first sight when i saw these guys.
i had to have them, and not just on paper.
i know. i am very weird.
so i made them.
first up, the pumpkin girl.
that "circle" is not even close to a circle.
it's more like a blob or something or other...
anyway, put that aside.
let's make the body.
see it coming along yet?
cut to fit means trimming the skewer.
ooo! look at those long skinny legs.
you just made some arms and a balloon.
paint the face with paint marker like it shows on the scrapbook paper, glue some candy eyes to her face and woolah!:
the trickiest part was carefully carefully carefully fitting her in the jar.
i had to remove a candy corn off her skirt cuz it was too wide.
one last detail before she is complete.
i got all these supplies btw from michael's.
all done. whew!
and yes i have gone batty cuz i made a pumpkin boy too, doing pretty much the same thing.
just like in the scrapbook design i showed you at the beginning of this ultra super long post.
and here he is:
then i truly lost my mind and made another one!
check it out...
i colored the straw with a sharpie and hot glued it on the circle i punched out of cardstock. his cheeks are candy sprinkles.
let's stick him in a jar ok?
so there you have it.
and i have 3 more jars left in the box...
but i had to make dinner and do some laundry cuz i really don't like my family naked and starving.
here they are together.
i took more pics but am now exhausted to edit the rest. and i don't blame you if you think this is waaay too daunting to make. for me it wasn't, but like i said i'm weird like that.
hope you enjoyed the "eye candy" and here's to you,
you cutie you, for stopping by!
