Day 259 ~ Make something that would normally be considered cute and cuddly into something that isn't. + Day 260 ~ Work with brown materials.
I know you are going to want to make one of these, so here's how ~ spray paint a bunch of little tacks brown, make the body of the bear out of balled up newspaper wrapped with masking tape, tear brown cloth into 1/2" strips and, using a brush to coat them with glue, wrap them around the bear until the newspaper core is covered, then use jeweler's glue to fasten the little tacks onto the body, as well as the googly eyes and a bead for the nose. It takes about 400 tacks for a 6" tall bear and a bit of patience.
