Tie Rattle Snake Buddy from V & Co.
The talented Vanessa of V& Co. shows us how to make a neat snake out of a tie — too cool!
*pencil with and eraser
*a little bit of red felt for tongue
*wiggle eyes, or white and black felt for eyes
*optional: for rattle: small plastic container from vending machine 1/2 way filled with dried peas.
*then you are going to do the same to the other side (the bigger side) of the tie. do so till you get to the opening of the tie.
*you will notice there’s a “silk” lining inside the tie, but that it only goes a little ways down. open up that flap and add just enough stuffing that you will be able to have a fluffy head but not too much that you can’t close it.
*hot glue gun your opening and the sides so it seals it completely down.
optional: if you want the tail to actually rattle get yourself one of those little plastic containers that those vending machines have, you know the little fake ring holder things. and add some dried peas to it. insert it to the tail and then continue with instructions!
*now hot glue gun the tail shut.
as you wrap hot glue gun it down with little dabs of glue.
add eyes and tongue with hot glue.
