Project Instructions

For the body, coil one chenille stem around a pencil. Slide off of pencil and set aside.

For the tail, coil one chenille stem around the pencil winding toward the sharpened end, wrapping over the sharpened part of the pencil. Slide off of pencil and set aside.

To make legs, cut a chenille stem in half. Bend one piece in half to make legs. Loop the ends to make feet. Repeat for other leg.

Cut a 3" piece of black chenille stem and bend in half. Swirl each end inwards, then bend upwards to make the eyes.

Cut a 3" piece of red chenille stem. Fold in half and twist to make a tongue.

For the head, make a loop about 1" long at the end of a chenille stem and twist to secure. Pinch the loop to make a nose. Attach another chenille stem at the base of the head and loosely wrap around the head until covered. Clip off excess and wrap toward the nose.

Slide the eyes onto the top of the head.

Slide in tongue at the end of the nose.

Slide the body coil on and then the tail and secure.

Slide the legs over the body and twist to secure. Bend out the feet.
