What You'll Need:

  • Animal-shape paper plate
  • Yellow acrylic paint

  • Orange pom
  • 2 purple sparkle chenille stems
  • Glitter glue: purple, green, pink, silver

How To Make a Kitty-Cat Face:

Step 1: Paint the back of the plate yellow; let dry.

Use masking tape to keep the cotton balls in place.

Step 2: Cut 2 egg cups from the outside edge of an egg carton, leaving the connecting piece between them intact. Place a cotton ball inside each cup and tape over it with masking tape so you will have a better surface to glue to the plate. Glue to the center of the plate with the rounded edge toward the "paws."

Step 3: Cut 4 more cups from the egg carton; discard the rest. Cut the bottom of 2 cups into pointy eye shapes, place a cotton ball inside each and tape over it, and glue the eyes to the plate.

Step 4: Cut the last 2 cups into ears, tape cotton balls inside, and glue them to the rim of the plate, cotton side down. Let all glue dry.

Step 5: Glue a pom between the 2 egg-cup cheeks. Cut both metallic chenille stems into three 3-inch pieces. Slide 3 pieces under the outside edge of each cheek, and glue in place.

Step 6: Decorate the inside of the ears with purple glitter glue, draw a green glitter glue iris on each eye, add a pink glitter glue mouth, and draw silver claws. Glue a short piece of black chenille stem onto each eyeball. Let dry.

Use animal-shape plates to make all different kinds of animals!
