Snowpeople

This was my weekend project....something different...no image transfers today. You know why?? I am out of Sheer Heaven & waiting for my order to arrive. I believe it's coming by way of carrier pigeon! Anywho......this idea came from Sue Pelletier & she was featured in Cloth Paper Scissors magazine. They are snowpeople rather than snowmen. I purchased some vintage bottles on Ebay for the project. They bottles are filled with little odds & ends but mostly pearls. The head is made from Model Magic (love that stuff) with brads for the eyes & mouth. The nose is orange weed wacker line & the hat is a screened drain catch for the shower. The two featured here are approximately 5 inches tall & around 3 1/2 inches on the smaller one. It was simple & a lot of fun!
HAPPY MONDAY EVERYONE!

How cute! I have some old bottles my mom collected. That gives me an idea to use them to hold beads. Thanks!
