Aw, thanks!  You might get wee tiny scratches from one of those kitty cats!

I love all of your Little People dioramas, but I think this one is my favorite.  Something about the combination of Christmas tree and herd of cats just makes me smile.  Smiley

    Aw, thanks! I seem to be getting into a groove with them.  In this case, a cat-filled groove.

    Too cute!! Just like cats. And the cat butt is perfect.

    For the top, maybe a bead cap of some kind?


    More inspiration:  https://www.google.com/search?q=bead+cap&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ei=qeGYUuC9NMX0kQfUw4B4&ved=0CFwQsAQ&biw=1920&bih=1070

    You can get them at Micheal's or Joanns or online anywhere too. TONS of styles. If you slipped the cord through, you could glue the bead cap down.

    Either way though, adorable!!

    I dug through my sorry bead stash with hope, but didn't have anything like these or at all appropriate.  Sad  A couple days ago, I ended up cutting a part out of a paper doily place mat and gluing it down.

    I didn't even know that Fisher Price had redesigned the Little People until I started making these and searching Ebay for them.  The new ones hold no charm at all for me.

    I LOVE those Little People!  Those were the ones I used to play with when I was a kid.  I totally wish I could steal this ornament for myself.
