Teddy Bear Tutorial

ADDITIONAL NOTE!! I think it is better with 2 pom poms for the body. They are so small it makes more room for the arms and legs.
This is an old standard but well worth repeating...perfect accompaniment for your little set of twins or toddler.
Supplies needed:
7 ea 3mm pom-poms
2 ea 5mm pom-poms
3 ea no-hole beads- black
silk ribbon or thread to make a bow for neck
Tacky glue
toothpick or your favorite tool
Step 1
Glue the head pom pom to the body pom pom (2- 5mm pom poms)
Step 2
Next put glue on 2 of the smaller pom poms. Then press the pom poms onto the body pom pom. Set them so the bear can sit without falling over.
Step 3
Next glue the 2 arms onto the body. I like to use a toothpick to pick up a little extra glue to put on the arm pom poms (after putting them on to the body), I put the glue up near the back-top area... so that the arms will also be glued to the head pom pom.
Step 4

Next glue on the 2 ears (small pom poms). Set them right up on the top of your teddy bear's head. Glue on the muzzle (small pom pom). Then glue on the no hole beads for eyes. You can also glue a bead for your teddy bear's nose. To finish up your Teddy Bear, you can add tiny bows, small silk flowers and other fancy items! If you feel really industrious you can highlight the inner ear with pink, and maybe the paw ends too.
