DIY Veggie Tales Toy

If you like to talk to tomatoes... you might just want to take a look at this make-it-yourself Bob the Tomato toy. He'd be a great stocking stuffer :-)

This craft costs less than a dollar and requires less than 15 minutes. It's very simple to do as he is made out of a tomato pin cushion available at the Dollar Tree (or any craft store). Keep reading to see how I did it.

What you need:
  • Red and White Felt or Fun Foam
  • Black Paint (preferable fabric paint)
  • Glue (I used hot glue)
  • Tomato Pin Cushions (available anywhere pin cushions are sold. I got 2 for $1 at the Dollar Tree.)
Cut out your felt pieces like so. Add black pupils to the eyes. I used regular acrylic craft paint and a brush, but fabric paint would have been much easier. If you are using fun foam instead of felt, a sharpie marker will work great!

Glue Pieces on. That's it! Not a bad resemblance, huh?

I thought it might also be cute with googly eyes...

I thought wrong. Lol!
