Cut a small rectangle from the green felt and glue to the back of the disc for the stem.

Use white glitter glue to add diagonal stripes to the stem. Pipe a border of white glitter glue around the facial features.

Use a toothpick or butter knife to carefully lift the wet disc and place it on a piece of paper to dry. This will take several hours to dry completely.

Tip: We used an older bottle of orange glitter glue, so it was a little thicker than a new bottle would be. Take care when squeezing out the glitter glue, you can always add more if you don’t have enough.
