Step 1: Cut a Tennis Ball in Half
Step 2: Take a Standard Size Balloon and Cut As Shown.
Step 3: Stretch Balloon Over the Ball
Step 4: Mark Out Features
Draw a line down the centre to create the two wings. Then mark out head and tail. I used a shot glass to draw the semi-circle for the head. My line is wonky as I tried to reposition the balloon after drawing.
Step 5: Stick on the Eyes
Step 6: Using a Skewer, Pierce Two Holes for the Antennae
Step 7: Make Two Antennae From Pipe Cleaners
Twist them at one end to make a small ball then push into the holes you just made
