- Trace Muzzle pattern onto foam block. Use Design It:™ Foam Cutter to cut out. Smooth and round edges by gently pressing cut edges with the back of a spoon.
- For ears, use Foam Cutter to cut the foam Ball in half. To make disk shape, slice 1/3 off the rounded side of the one-half ball. Set aside this scrap to later use for the nose. Round edges as in Step 1. Repeat with the other half ball. Referring to the photo, determine the placement of ears and use Foam Cutter to trim off the rounded area to fit the head. For support, insert two toothpick halves into the cut edge, apply glue and attach to the head with ears leaning slightly forward. Repeat to attach other ear.
- Glue muzzle to head, extending approximately 1″ below the head. Let dry. In a well-ventilated, newspaper-covered area, spray head/ears/muzzle with Almond. Let dry.
- Use tape to attach two sheets of copy paper together to make a larger sheet of paper. With a pencil, trace a face/hairline pattern on paper and cut it out. Referring to the photo for positioning, use loops of tape to attach the pattern to the head to mask off the area that will stay Almond color. (Note: Use additional paper also to cover ears.) Spray hair area October Brown. Let dry.
- Trace nose pattern onto foam scrap from the ear. Use Foam Cutter to cut out carefully. To make nostril indentations, press a pencil into the area to shape. Spray with Flat Black and let dry.
- Refer to photo to glue eyes and nose. Let dry. For the mouth, spray the clothesline with several coats of Red. Let dry. Position the mouth on the face and use a pencil to lightly draw the mouth line onto the foam. Remove mouth and use a pencil to press an indentation along the line, stopping about 1/4″ from the ends. Use the point of the pencil to press small holes at the mouth ends. Apply a line of glue to the indentation and holes. Carefully set mouth onto the glue and use a pencil to gently press ends into holes. Let dry.
- Position and glue bow under the chin. Let dry. (Note: Insert straight pins through contact points of the bow into foam.) Cut 4″ off the end of the yarn for the hair tuft. Wrap the rest of the yarn around the hand and use 4″ length to tie together wrapped loops at one end—press a hole in the top of the head with a pencil. Apply glue to the hole and press the tied end of yarn loops into the hole—clip loops on the other end.
- Refer to the photo to determine the angle at which the monkey will be displayed. For hanger, on back, measure and mark 2″ down from the top. Slightly separate curved end of paper clip 1/4″. Insert a shorter rounded end into foam, creating a hanger loop with a longer end of a paper clip. (Hot glue if loose.)
