Step 1: Cut Into the Tennis Ball

So find where you would like to cut and cut into it. Cut a straight line first then curve it below to make it look like a mouth. ( I would recommend outlining where you would like to cut on the tennis ball). It may be kind of hard to cut into the tennis ball but go slowly and go in a saw like motion. That is the hardest part done.

Step 2: Gluing and Googly Eyes

The second step of this project is to put the googly eyes on which is super easy. We put only three eyes on ours but do however many you feel like. I put little dots with a pencil where I wanted my eyes to be and then put the glue on those dots, then I quickly placed by googly eyes on the hot glue so t wouldn't dry and then I was done.

    That's neat! You could (possibly) have it as an alternative to pumpkins! I like it.

    That's a cute idea :) I think it'd be fun for a tennis teacher to have on their desk
