Another Halloween Transformation

I thought this was an exceptionally
pretty Pfalizgraff bunny, but it
just didn't fit my décor.
Maybe time for a Fall Transformation.
 The heart wants what it wants!
 At first, I painted the flowers Fall colors,
but they didn't look right.  I hated everything
about it.  So up on the shelf it sat for a few weeks.
I was going to throw it in the garbage, but
decided to cool my head for a while.  Then
a new idea popped into my mind.
 Using paper clay, I covered over the
flowers.  Then once that dried, I
recovered with Rigid Wrap, which
is always easy to paint over.
 I'm not ashamed to admit how much
fun I had making this!
 The trick-or-treat bag is filled with
a combination of new decorations
and old black feathers taken off a
1930s lady's hat.
 Originally, I made his clown hat
to fit, but thought it was too much.
I tried again, this time making a
much smaller, cuter one.
 Of course, he has to wear his
masquerade mask.  I added lots
of glitter to make it sparkle.
My Mom will slap me for this, but
here goes........
