How TO - From Applesauce Jar to Frankenstein Character
I was inspired to design this fun puppet looking Frankenstein for my son, one he won't be afraid of and want to put in the closest FOREVER. A few years back my husband purchased a "FUN" toy witch for Halloween. This witch however wiggled and laughed any time someone (our sweet child) moved past it with flashing red beady eyes......need I say more..:(
Tools and Supplies:
Apple Sauce Jar
Start with a clean apple sauce jar and apply Mod Podge to entire jar. Once Mod Podge has been applied cover jar with homemade paper and allow paper to completely dry.
On a piece of cardboard draw a nose, cut it out and then glue to jar.
Mix tissue paper into Mod Podge this will be used to form your nose and mouth. Apply tissue paper to cardboard nose and directly to jar to create mouth (allow tissue paper to completely dry).
Puncture sides of jar so you can insert the bolts (be sure to do this on a non-slip surface when cutting).
Paint entire jar green allowing jar to completely dry (you can use a hair dryer to speed up the process).
Use oil pastels to apply face shadows and colors.
Use a paint pen to draw in stitches.
Apply eyes, hair and ribbon using E-6000 glue.
You are finished!
Love to see what you are creating, you can upload your photos to the Let's get Crafty Flickr group!
Next week will also be a Halloween inspired creation!
