A while back I created a new friend, her name was Betty Bling. You may remember her. She made a bit of a stir over on Hometalk.
Well, Betty just seemed a bit lonely all by her self. So, I created a new friend for her. His name is Butch. Opposites attract wouldn’t you say? Betty is very sophisticated, Butch is grass-roots. Literally.
Butch is a happening kind of guy. He loves classic rock, bikes, and football. He’s a true Wisconsinite. Go Badgers!
Butch n’ Betty were easy to create using styrofoam heads that I found at Hobby Lobby.
I put Butch on top of a wine bottle filled with pebbles to paint him. He’s very serious looking, don’t you think?
These are all the supplies I used. Just some Magikote primer, Krylon stone metallic spray paint, and a paint brush. Don’t forget the wine bottle. Drinking the wine is half the fun!
I added a bandana, some aviator glasses and a groovy necklace. I couldn’t resist the earing. It just makes his Fiber Optic Grass hair seem more realistic.

I have them outside on my deck, at least until the next rain storm comes along. We have had some serious wind lately. You haven’t seen the last of them, I have BIG plans for them in the garden this summer. Be sure and stop back!
