For this project, I used:
- Pompom fringe in two different sizes
- Craft paint in blue, yellow, red, green, white
(yellow + red = orange / red + white = pink / blue + white + a little green = light teal)
- Tacky glue (works better than standard white glue in this case)
- Googly eyes
- Needle and thread
- (not pictured) Black Sharpie
I pose this as an alternative solution to my steps here:
Use colored pompoms sold in packets rather than while ball fringe. It will be less time- and material-consuming. The downside to this may be that they don't hold their shape as well. Once painted, the pompoms become quite firm and easier to work with.
If you try the alternative option, skip to step 3, and make sure to post pictures!!!!!!
