I think if I pause making Santas for a while, it might start to get warmer outside... Just a theory, it hasn't been tested yet.

I thought you might be interested in looking at my first paper mache clay project. I wanted to make something fairly simple, since I hadn't used this medium before. I made this little guy last September. He stands all of 5" tall, and is approximately 3-1/2" wide at the base.

He is a sweet Jack-O-Lantern, made in the style of a snowman. He sports a scarf of corn husk, real twigs for arms, and sits in a bed of lichens and moss with a tiny pinecone.

I enjoyed making him so much, that I switched from cloth based OOAK art dolls to paper mache.

If you are interested in owning him, or any of the items on my blog, he can be purchased directly from me.

Thank you for stopping by, and your comments are always appreciated.

Have a great day,

Hey Maggie, I really love this little fellow. You know how I feel about snowmen and he sure looks like a snowman to me, only cuter. I can see how he would inspire you to turn to paper mache.

Isn't he just an adorable little Jack-O-lantern! It was 88 here yesterday and I am already waiting for fall! :-)

88 degrees! That's just not fair!

88 is really super not fair, it is snowing here this morning. Maggie have you looked out the window yet?
Your pumpkin guy is as cute as can be, but then I have had the pleasure of seeing him in person.
