After the paint has dried, glue the egg-carton cups to the plate, as shown.
Look through magazines and cut out features such as eyes, ears, nose, and mouth.
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.
If you want, add yarn, fake fur, or other decorative touches to the plate.
Tape the wooden stick to the back of the plate.
