I was so right! The happy accident is just what I needed to happen. This time the colors are even better. The base coat is on, face drawn on, now I have the colors blocked in.
His straw is sponged on too. I just need to detail out his face and straw. He is looking just like his yard counterpart. I bought my candy corns to fill up the jar with, I can’t wait to get him finished!
The hat I created from some felt I had left over from a prior project. I thought I was finished. Not so fast, my daughter Maureen, had a fantastic suggestion. She had me go get some of the corn stalk blooms from the garden. They were dry now and she thought they would be a great “straw” addition under his hat. So, of course we tried it right away.
What a difference! She is a genius, a chip of this old block! So, my fall jar topper is complete and filled with candy corns, mmmmmm my favorite! I think I will enjoy this one for a while before I think about the next holiday topper.
Enjoy these crisp, clear, cold nights…………brrrrrr, fall is upon us now…….. Cyn
