Googly Eyed Busts


I recently scored big at Savers and found these small busts for 99 cents a piece. With my sister's "Victorian" Halloween party just around the corner, I was certain I'd find a purpose for these fine gentlemen.


Watered down black acrylic paint was used to "stain" their surface



I had an extra Dollar Store candle holder from my Apothecary Jar project. A few coats of black spray paint and a stone faux finish (gray paint and a sponge) transformed this guy into a pedestal.


The BEST part.... tiny googly eyes. This reminds me of a Scooby-Doo episode...



I feel like these distinguished men will display nicely on the mantel.
