  1. I made 14 of these to put autumnal accents on my booth at a harvest festival. They turned out really cute.

  2. Can do the same thing with kleenex, black yarn tied around and use a marker for the facial features for an easy kids project.

  3. I love this because its amazing. It’s so creative on how we do things. I just love it when people go out in the dark and scare me and I’m just in a stupid costume no one will like. Then the horrible night continues… it was when this horrible roar came!!

  4. Excellent Idea. this is different.
