    I found this pic on line. I think these are from Nevada near Vegas. I would love to have a bunch of these around my yard and house. Does anyone know how to do this?

    My husband & I are currently making one of these and we were wondering how the seams of the burlap were connected together? Does the monster mud hold it? We're at the stage where we're about to start with the monster mud, and we got stumped on that part. Any help would be great. Thanks!

    AQuinn27,

    The MM does indeed act like "glue" to hold the seams together. In fact, by applying a little extra MM to the seams and rubbing it in with your fingers, you can get the seam to virtually disappear if you like. It dries hard and becomes a single, solid piece. Monster Mud is one of my favorite mediums to work with.

    Ok, great! Thanks for the help! We haven't used this mud mix before, so we're new to the process. We're hoping ours turns out as cool as yours! Its awesome!

    You could always use hot glue to join the seams ...fast, easy, and it will hold.

    When I use hot glue to join things together I usually tack it in spots and keep a few ice cubes close by to cool it instantly by rubbing the ice on both sides of the seem. Most of the time spot tacking will be good enough but it's not hard doing the whole seam.

    Good idea! We actually completed the MM and burlap step last night. We are pretty happy with the way it turned out. We did have to tack a couple places (just until it dried) to make sure the material held together. This morning it was nearly completely dry and had already hardened quite a bit. Now we just need to find a cool old looking lantern for him to hold. We're so excited! Thanks to the writer of this tutorial. My husband & I have had a lot of fun creating this!
