How cute.!!! Have you been a busy little girl??? Like how you made the mouths. Is it wire or paint?
Good friends are like stars...You don't always see them, but you always know they're there.

Thanks all! Jean - Yes they are wire. I just used my little jewelry pliers to twist the ends and then bent them to the shape I wanted. What I loved about this one is I got this mini muffin tin in a lot I bought at an auction for $2 lol. It was all rusted so I sanded it down, painted it and then decorated it. I love using stuff others throw away. I'm cheap yes but I hate seeing anything go to waste lol.

The faces are actually snowtex. I put some hot glue in before putting the snowtex in to make sure it stuck. Then I just fashioned it into what I wanted. The eyes are just faceted black beads - pushed them into the snowtex - and the noses are clay - same thing, pushed in. The mouths are bent wire. I glued the little scarves on and added some blush. When I pushed the beads, noses and wires on it was more to create the right dip in the snowtex. I let the snowtex dry and then glued the extras into the correct areas. Thanks.
