31 days of Halloween: Day 3

I've made it to day 3!! I know that doesn't sound like much of an accomplishment,
But for me it is!
Today I'm sharing another Pinterest inspired creation!
This was a can of beans! Yes it was!
But any tin can will work! 
So go eat a can of soup and come back!

This guy was super easy and fun to make!

Paint your can green! 
Cut a little piece of felt for the hair (I happened to have some with a swirly design)
Attach the nose. Do this first, or his face may come out lopsided
Then the eyes, and then grab your sharpie it draw on the mouth and some extras
Finally add a little pink on his cheeks (I just used some distress inks)
And finally the ears!!
There is of course a story behind the ears!
I had some pretty orange earplugs all picked out and sitting on my craft table....
I walked away.... When I came back they were missing!
 I was able to find one, but the kitty isn't giving up the other, so lucky me I 
Found this yellow pair in the nightstand.... There was no sitting around, I hot
Glued those bad boys right on! 
Hope your enjoying the Halloween posts!
