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 😀
Oh before you leave, I also want to show you Greg’s Hanging Cage Halloween Prop. He made these hanging cages using Dollar store supplies and in less than an hour (including paint drying time.) So if you are looking for an inexpensive and easy Halloween project, these hanging cages might be the perfect choice for you. Click here or on the picture below to see how Greg made these cages!
