Step 1. Gather your supplies.
Paint the paper cup. Tip: if you dab the paint with the round, flat tip brush, as pictured, you can create a slightly textured look with the paint.
Using a pencil, punch (3) evenly spaced holes in the bottom of the cup.
Thread a Pink Fuzzy Stick through the first hole in the cup and then out through the third hole.
Thread one end of a 2nd Pink Fuzzy Stick through the middle hole. Attach this end piece to the pink look inside the cup as shown.
Pull the Fuzzy Sticks tight outside the cup and take them down to the under side of the cup.
Coil the middle Fuzzy Stick between your fingers to create a flat disc about the size of a quarter.
Repeat step 7 with the other (2) Fuzzy Sticks, this time the coils should be slightly smaller, as shown.
Using the pencil, punch (1) hole on each side of the cup.
Thread (3) Pink Fuzzy Sticks through the holes to create the arms for your monster.
Glue (1) large Wiggly Eye to the middle coil, and (2) medium size eyes to the smaller coils.
Coil a medium Glitter Pom to the end of each Fuzzy Stick arm.
Coil a Green Fuzzy Stick between your fingers to create a large flat disc.
Glue the Fuzzy Stick coil to the cup to create the base of the nose. Add (2) small Glitter Poms to create nostrils on the nose.
To create the mouth, cut a Pink Fuzzy Stick in half. Twist one half together and bend into a flat heart shape.
Glue the mouth on the cup then fill in small, white glitter poms as teeth.
