    • Wreath, 9" x 1-1/4" x 3/4"
    • Disc, 6" x 3/4"
    • Cone, 9" x 4"
    • Balls, two each: 1"; 3"
    • Sheet, 1" thick, scrap
  • Acrylic paints: green; black; magenta; white
  • Wooden dowel, 3/16", 9" length
  • Serrated knife
  • Candle stub or paraffin

  • Wooden skewers
  • Paintbrushes: stiff bristle; liner
  • Disposable palette

Steps:

Wax serrated knife with candle stub or paraffin. Cut foam disc in half for feet. Cut foam cone in half, cutting from tip to base, for legs. Cut one 1" foam ball in half for pupils.
Using photo as guide, cut two notches into straight edge of each foot for webbed look. Use scrap piece of foam to round off larger end of each leg (knees).
Insert wooden skewers into foam balls and half-balls. Holding skewer, use bristle brush to paint pupils black, 3" balls white (eyes), and remaining ball (nose) magenta. Place skewers in heavy glass or jar; let dry.
Paint feet, legs, and wreath body green; let dry. Use liner brush and black to outline pieces as shown. Use handle end of brush and white to dot knees and feet, and to add highlight dot to upper edge of each pupil.
Use craft knife to cut six 1-1/2" lengths from dowel. Apply white glue to each end of one dowel length. Insert one end of dowel into one eye; insert opposite end into top of body. Apply more glue where eye meets body. Repeat for other eye. Let dry.
In same way as eyes, glue feet to front of body; glue small ends of legs to back of feet. Glue pupils to eyes; glue nose to body.
