And now, for something really silly . . .
To round out the genre of Canning Jar Fetish, I'd been thinking about how just about anything could become a canning jar lid.
And about the moment I was thinking about it, I was futzing about in my sewing room. I was trying to decide on a good way to display a puppet that my sisters and I had played with as a kid, that I'd recently inherited because my dad is cleaning out the house.
And, well, you know, THIS happened.
Maybe the wolf is pooping chocolate balls, I dunno.
At any rate, if you want to make your own one of These Thingiess and you're curious about my construction technique, here's what I did.
- Stuff the head and arms of the wolf with fiberfill (toy animal stuffing, left over from other projects).
- Put a canning ring outside the wolf's waist, like a hula hoop.
- Slide a canning jar lid inside the puppet up snug against the stuffing, and into the ring.
- Once I was sure this fit well, I loosened up the jar/ring connection, added a bunch of superglue into the crevices, and then tightened things back into place.
- When the glue was dry, I snipped away the bottom portion of the puppet. It makes a nice "skirt" to go over the bottom portion of the jar, but I don't have that photographed here.
My, what nice big canning rings you have, Granny!
All the better to put food up, my dear! (growl chomp growl ymmmmm)
