2″ Foam Ball
Two 12mm wigge eyes
Eleven 1″ green pom poms
10mm Back Pony Beads
6″ x 9″ Green Felt
6″ length green chenile stem
Double sided tape
Small Plastic Bag (to hold parts)
Glue Gun or thick white tacky glue*
To hold puppet, insert 1/2″ of end of craft stick into bottom of foam ball. Remove, apply hot glue to the end, and re-insert (or use thick white tacky glue and dry overnight) Hot glue two eyes, side-by-side about 1/4″ apart on each foam ball. Also hot glue one green pom just under eyes for muzzle. Then glue black pony bead nested into green pom for nose.
Use wire utter to cut chenile stem into 6″ length
Horizontally place 6″ x 9″ felt on table. Fold over 1/2″ at top and tape to hold in place. Use scissors to make a 1/8″ vertical snip approx. every 1/2″ across full length (9″) of fold. This creates holes for weaving. Remove tape and unfold.
Weave chenille stem in and out of holes, allowing felt to gather.
