Paint
Paint the wooden stick, egg-carton cups, and one side of the paper plate (Use any colors you like).
Glue

After the paint has dried, glue the egg-carton cups to the plate, as shown.

Find magazine features

Look through magazines and cut out features such as eyes, ears, nose, and mouth.

Arrange cut-outs

Glue cut-out eyes to the tops of the egg-carton cups. Arrange the other cut-outs on the plate to create a face, then glue in place.

Add fake hair

If you want, add yarn, fake fur, or other decorative touches to the plate.


Attach stick

Tape the wooden stick to the back of the plate.
