Frog Gone Fishing

Frog Gone Fishing

1yd. green ribbon
30mm. movable eyes
1 green fun foam for feet
1 tan fun foam for sign
Cinnamon stick for fishing pole
4" terra cotta pot
1 1/2" wood disks
Acrylic paint - green isle & lime green
Brown marker
Black marker
Wood sealer
Satin finish
Sand paper
Decorative edge scissors
24 gauge wire
Hot glue
Wood glue

Sand wooden disks. Apply sealer to wooden pieces and to terra cotta pot. Turn pot upside down and glue disks onto pot at upper edge for eyes, using wood glue. Base coat circles and pot with green isle. After paint has dried, sponge with lime green, allowing dark green to show through in places. Spray painted surfaces with satin finish & dry. Cut 3"x2" from tan fun foam for sign using decorative scissors. With black marker, write "Gone Fishing" on sign. With brown marker, draw a few lines on sign to look like wood. Attach sign with wire to end of cinnamon stick - make it look like a fishing pole with sign on end. Glue 30mm eyes to center of wooden disks. Cut ribbon 7 1/2" for arms and 4 3/4" for legs. Cut out feet from green fun foam from pattern. Glue one foot to each 4 3/4" piece of ribbon and glue onto pot. Glue ribbon arms onto pot at center back - cut other end at an angle. Bring around to front of pot - curving slightly, glue. Glue fishing pole stick to side of pot by arm.

chuckle OH I LOVE HIM TOO!!!!


I am going to be busy trying out your ideas. Wish we were close so we could craft together It's always more fun to work with someone else around.

Hope you are having a great day


A friend is one to whom one may pour out all the contents of one's heart, chaff and grain together, knowing that gentle hands will take and sift it, keep what is worth keeping and, with a breath of kindness, blow the rest away.
