Download the template from the Stats tab above. Chose the face you like and color it.
Once it is colored cut out the face.
There are three ways to secure the paper to the cork. First is with Mod Podge. Apply a thin layer of Mod Podge to the entire surface of the cork.
Roll the paper around the cork and secure. Apply another layer of Mod Podge over the paper.
Or you can attach the paper with a glue stick. Apply a thin layer of glue over the entire cork.
Wrap the paper around the cork and secure. Cover the paper with another layer of glue.
Finally, you can simply tape the paper to the cork. Place a small piece of tape on one end of the paper.
Roll the paper around the cork and secure the other end with another piece of tape.
Now it is time to make the troll's hair. Create a loop of yarn by rolling it around your hand about twenty times.
Tie one end of the loop with a small piece of yarn. Cut the loop at the other end.
To make the troll's hair fuzzy we will take a brush and brush the yarn until the strands break apart and the yarn becomes fuzzy.
When you have brushed all of the individual strands fold the yarn in half and brush that some more.
Once you have the hair to the shape you like use your hot glue to glue it on the top of your cork.
