    Ad
  • felt to match color of nose
  • tack, safety pin, or paper clip
  • hot glue or rubber cement
  • two pieces of yarn

Directions

Nose

  1. Cut one of the cups off the egg carton, make edges straight. Paint cup in your desired color (not black), let dry.
  2. Once dried use a Sharpie permanent marker to draw the tip of the nose onto the end of the egg carton cup.
  3. Use tack, safety pin or paper clip to poke holes into the side of the cup for the whiskers.
  4. Poke three holes into each side and thread a pipe cleaner through one hole and out another on the other side. Press the pipe cleaner down into the cup so it will not interfere with the nose. Do the same with two more pipe cleaners cut the ends off to make the whiskers the length you desire.
  5. Create one more hole on each side feed a piece of yarn through the each hole and tie a large knot on the inside end. You will use these two strings to tie the nose onto your head.
  6. Ears

    Cut two squares out of the felt so it can be folded in half to make one triangle shaped ear. Fold the square diagonally over the head band and glue together and in place on the headband. Do the same with the second square of felt. Now you have the ears for your cat. You could also use polar fleece or fake fur for these.
