For this monster, the idea bounced off My Little Snowman Creation that I had made a while back.
I had some random things laying around my room that helped create this creation such as yarn, paper clip, a mini surfboard I had etc. …
… and TA DA! My creation was born!
Here’s the back of my monster:
I took empty, carboard washi tape and wrapped some yarn around to create his body. For his arms, I still used a paper clip but I made holes in the cardboard and poked it through both sides (this is before I wrapped the yarn around).
His head, however, was a bit different from his body. I had this small eyeball ball. I had no plans for him until this project. I cut the eyeball thingy in half and hot glued one half to the front of the cardboard and wrapped yarn around. As I was reaching the end, I realized the back looked empty so I took the back of the cut eyeball thingy and glued it to the back before finishing wrapping it with yarn.
I, then, added the hat that I made out of a erase and rubik’s cube before gluing all the parts together then gluing the monster onto the mini surfboard that I painted black.
During the process, I had this repeated idea to make him into ornament, which was unlike the snowman, and so I took some more yarn and made an ornament.
My family was creeped out by my creation but I really like my monster!
