|I made this insane, glittered, purple, yard bunny|
He didn't always look like that. In fact, those are totally prosthetic paws! His original paws cracked off in a bizarre snow melt incident. And he had a banged up ear, too. I'm sure anyone else would have... hey, how do you dispose of an unwanted cement garden creature? Bury it?
So I patched him up, but once he was whole again I had to find a way to make him look like he was never patched.
And if glitter doesn't hide all the flaws, what does?

Speaking of my kitchen table? Yeah. No Pinterest set-up photo shoots here. I had that junk sitting on the table while I was working on this so it's in the photos. You're okay with that, right?
Once his paws dried a little, I pulled them off and added some craft glue inside them and stuck them back on. I don't want them falling off later on, so why not take the extra step?
Then began the mayhem:
Hazel and I gave him 3 coats of paint with foam brushes. He totally soaked up the paint in some spots. Painting is SO MUCH easier than glittering so I wanted to be sure that he was really covered. You'll never notice the glitter bald spots if there's paint there. Or at least that's my story and I'm sticking to it.
Paws went last, I wanted to be sure they were completely dry before painting.
