Hair is made of yarn. Clothing and accessories are pieces of fabric and
ribbon that are glued to the bottles. Arms are pipe cleaners with
stocking-over-batting hands and pieces of fabric glued in place to cover the

each bell and put a raffia bow on top of the twine where it is
tied together. Hang outdoors for a breeze or indoors as a
