Make this little cutie:
The sheep dog may be my very favorite!
So easy to make! And relatively inexpensive, as well, if you have most of the items on hand.
You will need:
-metal pails (Home Depot and Lowe's have them in their paint section. You can also try a local hardware store)
-boas (these were from Hobby Lobby and Michaels)
-hot glue gun and glue sticks
I simply sprayed the cans with whatever spray paint I had. The slicker, shinier pails were harder to spray paint, as the paint seemed to drip. If you are patient and spray just a light coat and wait until the paint is dry before beginning your next coat, you will have better luck. I probably sprayed 5 or 6 light coats on these pails.
When the pails/buckets were dry, I glued the boas to the upper rim of the pail.
I then added eyes, nose whiskers using paint pens and felt. I am NOT an artist - anyone can do this.
You can have fun with this. Let me know if you come up with something else. I was trying to think of more "boyish" ideas. I tried making a clown with red trim and a red pom-pom for a nose, but it was U-G-L-Y.
Have fun and Happy Easter!
