Directions:


Step 1: Bend the tip of the noodle as shown and tie the twine tightly around to create the bridle. You can also wrap a pipe cleaner around the twine to add some color after you’ve tied the twine. Leave enough twine to hang so it looks line reins – the reins are just for fun.

Step 2: Turn the felt lengthwise and cut a strip about 12″ long by 1″ wide. Trim the ends into points to create the ears.

Step 3:  Cut the next strip about 12″ long by 4″ wide. Fold this stripe in half lengthwise and cut waves around the edges to create the mane.

Step 4:  Slide the piece for the ears between the part of the noodle that is folded, as shown, and pull them up into place. Glue the ears firmly in position.

Step 5:  Glue the mane and wiggly eyes in place.

Now all that’s left to do is giddy up and have some fun!
