I made this circus wagon from a masonite frame and an Altoid tin with the lid removed. I painted the frame red and gold, and added glitter, sequin stars, and metal studs and then glued it to the front of the tin with some E6000. The wheels are painted wooden spools with carpet tacks in the centers. I mounted the horse on foam core to give it stability, and festooned his bridle with a couple of the many feathers my sofa pillows are always losing.  Cheesy The flagpole is actually a toothpick topped with a couple of beads.



The figures in the wagon are built up with foam tape, so they're more dimensional.



There they go...off to the big top!



I never get tired of that circus theme.  Grin

What a wonderful piece! What are the characters from? Did you stamp them or are they from scrapbook paper?

Thanks everyone! I love me a good circus.  Cheesy

The figures are from my favorite collage sheet at Alpha Stamps. It's called "Tiny Circus", and you can find it, and other circus themed pages, hereSmiley
