Once the two circles are dry, add a bit of distress ink around the outside edges.
Using an 8 ½” X 11” piece of cream cardstock fold in half, so it should be 4 ¼” X 11”. Draw ears or freehand cut ears out.

Sketch out eye brows, mouth and teeth with a pencil and then go over with marker once satisfied.

**Options to make it your own. You can use material for the ears. Add flowers to the hat. Paint the hat plaid. You can add a hanger on back so you can hang or just let it sit on a shelf. Use an old pallet piece for the body to stand outside your front door. So many ways to make this your own.
Don't be afraid to substitute other materials like a recycled cardboard instead of the wood panel.
