Other things I tried didn't make me laugh but this did.
I took the lid off. This container of brads may make a good head.
Here he is with legs and a body. Now I just need a head and balls for arms. I'm not sure how to adhere those two things but I ordered some Apoxie Sculpt and I think that will help. Rosemary Luckett, my teacher, often uses dowels to adhere pieces, so I might end up doing that.
