Directions

Take the 2” wood ball knob and paint it with the white acrylic paint. Let dry. Use the end of the fine tip paintbrush to paint dip dot eyes on the ball knob with the black acrylic paint. Let dry. Add a tiny dip dot of white acrylic paint to the black eyes for an accent. Let dry. Use the end of the paintbrush to make dip dot circles of orange paint on either side of the face for the cheeks. Let ry. Use the black Sharpie marker to draw on a squiggly smile.

 

Cut the cheesecloth into 6 layers of 6” x 6” pieces. Take one layer at a time and drape the cheesecloth over the top of the jar lid. Layer each piece at an angle so that the bottom edge is uneven. Use a little glue to adhere the cheesecloth to the lid. Place the painted head on top of the cheesecloth and glue to the lid. Use the two colors of 1/8” ribbon and make a loopy bow. Place the bow at the bottom of the neck and glue in place.

 

Unscrew jar lid to fill with treats.
