Monsters Inc. Mike Wazowski Holiday Ornament Supplies

1. Begin by adding a few drops of green paint to the inside of your ornament. Just pour it directly inside. Place your thumb over the opening and gently turn and shake the ornament so the paint distributes. You may need to add a few more drops and repeat the process until the entire inside of the ornament is coated.
2. Replace the cap on the ornament and give it a little time to dry and settle. Repeat if you notice some spots that are yet to be coated.
3. Cut out a large circle from your white felt or paper. Add some craft glue and press it to the center/front of the ornament.
4. Next, cut out a smaller blue circle. Add some glue and apply it to the center of the white circle. You will now see the eye starting to form.
5. Finish the eye by cutting out an even smaller black circle from your felt or paper. Place it in the center of the blue circle. Your eye is now complete.
6. Finish the face of Mike by coloring a black oval for the mouth. Allow the ink to dry. Snip out a small zig zagged piece of white felt for teeth. Apply some glue and press them directly over the ink oval.
