Directions

Trace and cut out pieces from Foamies and felt according to the patterns.

 

Glue the ” pompom to the 1 ” pompom. The ” pompom will be the head.

 

Use the ” heart punch to punch out 1 heart from the pink Foamie. This will be the nose. Cut the black crochet thread in half. Lay the 2 pieces of thread on top of each other. Place and center the nose on top of the threads and glue in place. Place the nose/whiskers in the front center of the head and glue in place. Place the 5mm eyes above the nose and glue in place.

 

Dot a small amount of glue at the bottom of each ear. Pinch the bottom sides together so that it stays shut. Glue the ears on the sides of the rat’s head where the head meets the body, making sure the pinched edges are at the bottom of the ear. By hand, curl one end of the chenille stem. Glue the uncurled end to the end of the 1 ” pompom for the tail.

 

With the Black Sharpie, write “2008” vertically on the gray Foamie.

 

Place the 2008 sign vertically on one end of the clothespin and glue in place. Place the pompom rat above the sign and glue in place.
