A Homemade Version of Dancing Baby Groot From ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’

Patrick Delahanty of The Chibi Project very cleverly made his own “Dancing Baby Groot“, the beloved miniature version of Groot that appeared in the closing credits of Guardians of the Galaxy.

I made this using a “Movin’ & Groovin'” flower I got from eBay, cut off the dumb daisy, and covered the stem on felt and twine. My fiancée sculpted the head from Model Magic. We then painted everything with brown and tan paint. He can now dance to Peter Quill’s “Awesome Mix”…or to my own mix.

Patrick also very generously documented the process through photographs.
