My husband found this vase at a local consignment shop.  When he saw it, he automatically thought of Dr. Seuss' sculpture of crazy creatures



Imagine the vase without the feathers, I forgot to take a before picture, this is more of a during picture...

Dr. Seuss and Sesame Street combined with the ugly vase, styrofoam eyes with pom pom pupils, feathers, pipe cleaners and popsicle stick accents becomes the Google-eye Tufted Warbler!





Dr. Seuss made sculptures of his creatures to look like hunting trophies, which is why I went with this look.

This is fantastic! Did you see the episode of Antiques Roadshow where someone actually had one of the originals? It was amazing. I'd love to make one someday.

This is fabulous!  I wish I could look at a vase and see something like this.  It's definitely Dr. Seuss-ish, but it also reminds me of those aliens from Sesame Street Wink

Yup, yup, yup, yup, yup. Uh-huh, uh-uh!
