Step 1:

First, gather your supplies and take all excess toilet paper off of the toilet paper roll.

Step 2:

Next, take your construction paper and cut it out in the shape you want for your clothing. Make sure the clothing goes all around the paper towel roll. Take your hot glue gun and glue the "clothing" to the paper towel roll.

Step 3:

After you have the basics down, it's time to add some details. Add another color of construction paper, give your mini you some hair. For my hair I used a small bundle of unwrapped string and just glued it right on. You can use whatever you wish to do hair though.

Step 4:

Now you can add eyes. You can use pencil to draw eyes, or you can use paper, but for my mini me, I used googly eyes.

Step 5:

For my last step I added a small mouth with the pencil. You can use paper, or marker, or even crayon. It's really up to you, but for mine, I used pencil.
