For Christmas I made a bottle holder for y brother-in-law who like geckos. I found a peice of maple at The Home Depot with a good pattern for a gecko. Most of the carving is done with a dremel. The eyes are colored with sharpies and the rest is Crayola crayons. I went out and bought a 120 count box of crayons so I would have enough different greens. I mainly colored within the lines. The dark gray backgorund is a mix of craft paint.

Wonderful creative way to give more zing to these bottle holders. Looks cool and keeps the cork wet. What else could one desire? Also kudos for keeping inside the lines!
