3. Glue two wiggle eyes to the front of the cup near center.

4. Glue one pink pony bead under the eyes as the nose.

5. For Santa's beard, glue white cotton balls or white pom poms to the cup. Make sure to also add the cotton balls or pom poms to the top of the cup as the trim for Santa's hat, and add one at the top of the triangle.

Little Snowmen

 

1. Paint the cup with white acrylic paint and let dry.

2. Glue two wiggle eyes close together.

3. For the carrot nose, cut a small triangle out of the orange craft foam and, using the glue gun, attach the triangle to the front of the cup, under the eyes. (Another option would be make a small slit in the front of the cup and poke the nose through.)

4. For the arms, use the wire cutters to cut a black pipe cleaner (chenille stem) in half, this is the arm base. Then cut another pipe cleaner into two additional pieces about 2" in length. Take the two smaller pipe cleaners and twist them around the arm base. You should have two identical arms.

5. Next, cut a small strip out of the felt. Using the glue gun, attach the felt strip around the base of the cup and then attach the arms to either side of the cup.

6. To make the mouth, glue four pom poms to the front of the cup, under the nose.

7. Let it dry completely.
