3.Paint this side of the egg cups pink.

4.From your cardboard box cut a headboard and a foot board a little longer than the row of dwarfs. The head should be twice as talla s the foot. Paint blue and let dry.

5. Cut a square of fabric for each dwarf. Glue a blanket over and around the bottom egg cup of dwarf.

6. Glue 2 wiggly eyes and a pompom nose on top each egg cup to make a face for each dwarf. Add cotton around head and chin for hair and whiskers.
