  2. For nose, cut a 1x3 inch length from paper twist that has been untwisted. Roll paper twist into a 1 inch long cone shape. Use a pencil to make a small indention at center of ball for nose. Glue nose to head. (You may substitute an orange chenille stem for the paper twist.)
  3. For eyes, cut two 1/2 inch diameter circles from felt or fun foam. Glue eyes to head.
  4. Inset pins into black beads and insert below nose to form mouth.
