Now we are getting to the real action: once my tomato cage was lifted from the floor, I started hot gluing the grass skirting to the second support ring on the tomato cage. I skipped the first support ring, as it was too close to the ground.
With the top part, the process was no different than before. I just kept hot gluing the grass skirting until I had none left.
Once I finished creating the main body, it was time to dress him up, so first I put his sunglasses on.
Then I put on his Derby hat, and with that, he was ready to go out in public. 🙂
Are you ready for the beauty shots?? Wow, look at him – he is fast! He already found a good looking lady to accompany him. Hahaha 😀
Ok, maybe it isn’t what I think it is… Looking at these whole set of beauty shots once again, I think Greg is up to some mischief – LOL.
Skele-yap: Hey babes?! Come here, so I can show you how I want you to do this new project.
Cousin Itt: Crap. In a bit my babes! I’m still busy with the thousand other projects you already gave me!
Skele-yap: But babes, this is really important! Now, you know how you made that planter? Well, I want this one to look like that, but also a bit shorter and yada yada yada blah blah blah…
Cousin Itt: [Slaps himself. Pinches himself] Why haven’t I woken up? This is a dream, right? A nightmare? Oh crap, it’s real! Run!
Skele-yap: My babes – where are you going? We didn’t talk about the details yet! Look, now, if we do blah blah blaaaaahh…
Cousin Itt: I’m just gonna go stand over there. Too much sun over here – don’t worry, I’m still listening! Yeah, right. Tuning out in 3…2…1…
Skele-yap: [keeps detailing the project] blather, blather, blather, yammer, yammer, yammer…
Cousin Itt: Dangit, why won’t this old bat just shut the heck up?
Skele-yap: [constant yapping]
Cousin Itt: If I ignore her, will the yammering just go away? Maybe I should run and hide.
The Eyeball: Dude – you’re done for! There’s no running from her. Why do you think I’m just hanging here? If I don’t move, she won’t see me!
Cousin Itt: The eyeball is right. Maybe if I stand still, she’ll think I’m a statue, and she’ll go away!
Skele-yap: [Noise. Non-stop noisy noise]
Cousin Itt: If she just stopped jawboning for five minutes to make me a dry martini, this whole “I have a project for you” thing might be a little more bearable!
The eyeball: You need a good hiding spot – run, dude, run!
Cousin Itt: [thinking voice] Crap! Where can I hide? Where can I hide?
Skele-yap: [words words words – a never-ending stream of words]
Cousin Itt: Think! Think, you grass-brain! Where to hide, where to hide?
Cousin Itt: A-ha! I know where to hide!
Cousin Itt: Phew! That was a close one! But this spot is great – she’ll never find me here, hehehe 😀
I hope you liked our version of Cousin Itt! Considering that I was inspired by Greg’s squirrel, our Cousin Itt actually turned out pretty cute, right? No wonder Skele-yap was all over him. Hahahaha 😀
Don’t forget to save this idea to Pinterest, so you can find it again later!
