This is what I shipped off last Thursday and my friend got it on Saturday-all the way out to California! She really liked it and it was so fun to make. I basically used a bit of glue and wire. The pedestal is a spool for that wide Christmas ribbon which is cardboard. I used pretty fall scrapbook paper and some punch out yellow letters. I added some mosaics around the top. He is sitting on one of Martha Stewart’s acorns-it’s a half of a box that I colored in. I made the little hat-the hardest part! He is wired on by his tail to the acorn. Around the border are tiny leaves. My friend not only likes squirrels, she likes Snoopy too, so he was put in a prominient spot on the front. The trick or treat bag is a bought embellishment. Finally he is wearing little orange and black bells around his neck.
