  • Wrap the toilet paper in your strip of batting for some extra fluffiness
  • Glue to secure
  • Set your toilet paper roll wrapped in batting into the center of your fabric square
  • Trace hand prints, and some of the wrist (about 2 in.) onto the green fabric, and cut those out 
  • Take your cardboard tube, and fold it a couple of times so that it’s a skinny piece of rolled up cardboard
  • Wrap it in the rope, gluing to secure in several places 
  • Glue the ends of the rope so that they won’t fray
  • Cut a piece of wire and twist it so it forms a curly piece of stem
  • Now, pull the fabric up around the toilet paper and stuff the corners and edges inside the tube
  • Add the ends of the hand prints into the tube (the wrist section), the curly wire, and finally the rope covered cardboard
  • Bend the rope stem for an extra cute look
