Materials Tools
3 Clothespins
1/2" x 1/2" Green felt
1" x 3" Red felt
3/8" Red pompom ball
3/8" White pompom ball
PVC ring or 10" ribbon
Black permanent marker
Hot glue

See the Miscellaneous section for more instructions, hints and tips.

This is a quick and easy project.

Use standard size or mini clothespins which are available in craft stores.

For the nose you could use a piece of red felt cut in a circle. For the tail you could use a small cotton ball.

The eyes could be drawn on with a permanent marker or use wobble eyes.

  1. Cut out triangles for eyebrows from the green felt and hot glue them in place.
  2. Make the eyes with either wobble eyes or a permanent marker.
  3. Glue on the nose.
  4. Glue the other two clothes pins together.
  5. Cut the red felt to fit like a saddle. Glue it in place and trim off any excess that is hanging over the edges.
  6. Glue on the tail.
  7. To make an ornament, hot glue a 10" ribbon or string in a loop onto the back of the head.
  8. Put a glob of hot glue on the front of the body and glue the head and body together.

If you want to make a neckerchief slide, don't glue on the ribbon, but hot glue a PVC ring to the side of the body.
