3  Re: Animal friendly fake taxidermy *tutorial* in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by DirtyBird on: January 18, 2007 03:47:05 PM
What a great idea...I'd be afraid my dogs would eat it. Great job!

I bought this from VanDykes also. I am beading her/him. I put fake human eyes in it. The antlers are real though. I have a few hunters in the family and deer parts abound. It'll probably take the rest of my life to finish.

4  Mailbox in Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Completed Projects by DirtyBird on: January 18, 2007 04:38:53 AM
I am giving some friends a mailbox I decorated as a wedding present. They got married in Costa Rica so I went with a beachy look. They had seen a toy box I made with the same kind of Eric Carle inspired collage and really liked it. I hope they like the box. I didn't photo the front b/c I have left it cedar so far and I will wood burn the address...I still may  stain it but not ready to decide yet.

This is the one that I stained...I used a soft brush to apply stain...the beads on the handles didn't take the stain as well b/c they had some sort of finish on them so I distressed the bag to match and used a spray clear finish on it to seal it.

I spray painted this one...much easier than staining. I decorated the top with beads and a plaster skull.
With both of these bags I opted for wire as the closer instead of elastic...I have some old telephone wire that is copper with colored coatings. I just used coordinating colors (or I would have stripped them).
