Monday made it: rock monster

I seem to have a thing for rocks this summer.

First it was strawberries.

Then the alphabet.

A rock family adopted me.

And now monsters.

I found these little fanged beauties on Pinterest, pinned from Coastal Inspired Creations.

And I just HAD to make them.

First job was to spray paint.  I took over a corner of the driveway.  Lots of light coats. Both sides.  Patience was not my strong point.

They already looked pretty good.

Black sharpie.  Mouth on.

White paint pen.  Teeth.  I suppose that the mouths and teeth could be painted on.  But I already had the paint pen from making these cute little waddlers, and I don't think my hand is steady enough for a paintbrush (barely made it with the pens!)

And we are waiting for eyes.

I'm loving them.

Now to pack them away until Go Away Big Green Monster time.  I'll have to leave a couple in "my office" to keep me company until then.

I have linked up with Tara at Fourth Grade Frolics for Made It Monday.  Check it out!
