|Halloween Shakers - still have more to come.|
I have 3 new black cats. They took some time to do, but it was worth it. I wanted to be able to fill them with beads so they would have sound as a traditional shaker. I couldn't find a hollow pre-made paper mache form in the sizes I wanted and didn't want to wait to order them....so I went ahead and made my own forms. Grabbed a couple of balls (LOL - sounds naughty!) and went to work.

I still continue to make my traditional shaker designs because I always get requests for them each season. This year I added a twist to two favorite designs. I decided to make a "drum" design this year.
It was my first attempt at these and as with everything, I wing it as I go along. I might make a few more and take some real step by step photos for you all.
Oh, and I got a little crazy and decided to do a three dimensional pumpkin shaker as well....and yes, I made the hollow form to be able to fill him with beads as well.
