Step 1: 

Download the template from the Stats tab above.  Chose the face you like and color it.

Step 2: 

Once it is colored cut out the face.

Step 3: 

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.

Step 4: 

Roll the paper around the cork and secure.  Apply another layer of Mod Podge over the paper.

Step 5: 

Or you can attach the paper with a glue stick.  Apply a thin layer of glue over the entire cork.

Step 6: 

Wrap the paper around the cork and secure.  Cover the paper with another layer of glue.

Step 7: 

Finally, you can simply tape the paper to the cork.  Place a small piece of tape on one end of the paper.

Step 8: 

Roll the paper around the cork and secure the other end with another piece of tape.

Step 9: 

Now it is time to make the troll's hair.  Create a loop of yarn by rolling it around your hand about twenty times.

Step 10: 

Tie one end of the loop with a small piece of yarn.  Cut the loop at the other end.

Step 11: 

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.

Step 12: 

When you have brushed all of the individual strands fold the yarn in half and brush that some more.

Step 13: 

Once you have the hair to the shape you like use your hot glue to glue it on the top of your cork.

Step 14: 

All done.
