Cool!  But I thought it was an Everlasting Gobstopper from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.  Probably because I didn't have one of these to make me smart when I was a kid. Cheesy

That's awesome.... this used to be one of my favorite TV shows as a kid.

Same here! My nieces got into watching the series on DVD.

  I'm entering this for my nieces. Every year they pick a theme and they and my sister create a wonderland of gingerbread. This is based on the classic Dukes of Hazzard tv series.Click on the thumbnails. Enjoy!

Cooter's garage is in the back.

I don't remember if there was a Sheriff Roscoe. He may have been eaten before photos.

Wow!  Such detail.  I can't imagine cutting into this. This rocks!

Wow!  These are amazing.  Did you use an armature, or just wing it?  They look great.

Thanks!  The pig and the cow were straight up solid needle felted, but the flamingo has wire and its feet are felted to the base for stability.

  I was much inspired by all the wooly fabulousness at the enormous Sheep and Wool Festival in Rhinebeck, NY a few weeks ago.  It was awesome.  So much to see. And I made a few little things. I neglected to take pics to indicate scale. Piggy is about
1 1/2" tall, cow about 3", flamingo about 5"?. Enjoy. And plan on going next year.

I like that it looks awesome both on and off.  Nice job!

I love this. I wonder if you could just glue it with good old Elmers glue and just spray coat it with varnish a few times when you are done. I am soo cheap and lazy. Spray varnish is cheaper than Mod Podge.

I don't see why not.  I just hate spraying because I'm too lazy to go out to the garage.

I have made paper bowls like these https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=71395.msg671168#msg671168before by coiling paper strips but this is a little different.  and probably the last because it took so long. The thing that cracks me up is that Lands' end finally quit sending them to me-I was getting one a month.  So I picked these up while walking through Sears. This bowl is made from about half of a   catalog cut into 1 1/2 in. strips and folded into 1/4 in. strips with about 1/2 in. of fringed edge. Scotched taped ends of strips as I coiled them around. I mod-podged the bottom as I went.  Some pics of the process...

folded strips with fringe

the inside before a jillion layers of mod podge

the bottom

the legs are small coils stretched out, mod podged, and filled with hot glue.
It's hard to tell, but the inside is quite smooth which was what I wanted.

could have been an interesting hat.

and one for scale

Well...maybe I'll have to make more with the other half of the catalog. Hope I haven't put you to sleep.  Thanks for looking!
