  • Step 1Paint your decofoam ball in a skin tone and then set aside to dry.
  • Poke a skewer into the base of the ball to hold onto. This will make the painting and decorating process much simpler!
  • Step 3Paint another decofoam ball a bright colour. Allow to dry.
  • Step 4Push your toothpick into one of the painted balls. Push the other end of your toothpick into the other painted decofoam ball.
  • Step 5Cut lengths of chenille stems to create hair. Push the chenille stems into the head of your happy person and bend into shape.
  • Step 6Cut 4 lengths of armature wire to create arms and legs. Bend the ends over and twist to create hands and feet.
  • Step 7Attach two eyes to your happy person’s face with glue and draw a smiling mouth on their face with a permanent marker.
