Giddy Up!

I know all of you have been eyeing up these stocking turned horsey creations in blogland right? Well, I didn't have that Stampin Up sizzix die at the time I made this fella, so I used the largest stocking die from my Lifestyle crafts set and it worked out nicely. Added some yarn for his hair- just used very strong double stick tape to adhere it down and then slapped on the other half of the horse to keep it in place. The harness was done using ribbon and a mini brad. Eyes were just punched using 3/4" and 1/2" circle punches and the ears were made using my MS heart punch that I folded in half on the wide end and taped it together so that the pointy side was still a little open. He reminded me of those toy horse on a stick that kids play with, so I put him on a candy stick bag filled with pixie sticks. Let me tell ya, pixie sticks are way smaller than before! Look how short the stick is! If you are making this project, you might want to stick with regular m&m's instead since you can make it taller if needed. It's raining today in Hilo, which I would normally love on a Saturday (so I can stay home and craft) but I have class today, so not looking forward to getting wet! I know you are thinking... Hello, its Hilo! It always rains! ha ha ha.
