Adorable, freaky, and quick to make.

Parts:

  • 12 inch long Pipe Cleaners
  • 1.4 inch diameter Foam Balls
  • Googly Eyes

Tools:

  • Box Cutter
  • Scissors
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Ruler
  • Matte Black quick dry spray paint

Step 1: Cut the Foam Ball in Two

Use the line on the foam ball as a guide to split it into two identical halves.

Step 2: Paint

Paint the tops. No need to paint the bottoms. Spray as downward as possible (about 45 degrees) to minimize the foam pieces from getting blown away.

Step 3: Glue the Two Halves

  • Slice a small flat surface on both half spheres.
  • Hot glue the half spheres on that flat surface.

Step 4: Prepare for Glueing

  • Cut a cardboard disc slightly smaller than the half sphere.
  • Align one end of four pipe cleaners.
  • Find the middle of the pipe cleaners (not critical, approximate is fine)

Step 5: Glue the Legs

  • I used blue tape to show the middle, but you could just use your finger to mark where the middle is.
  • Hot glue the legs onto the bottom of one of the half spheres.
  • Use the cardboard disc to press hot glue and the legs together.

Step 6: Bend the Legs

  • Hot glue the eyes to the same half where we glued the legs onto.
  • Bend all the legs halfway (3 inches in).
  • Bend up by the body.
  • Spread out the legs also near the body.

Step 7: All Done!

And we're done!
