How to make your National Cow Appreciation Day Craft

  2. Cut two small horns from the black cardstock and glue to top of the cow’s head.  Allow the glue to dry.  (see photos)
  3. Glue the wiggly eyes to the cardstock circle.  Glue the pink button below the wiggly eyes for the cow’s nose.  Using a marker, draw a smile on the button for the cow’s mouth.  Allow the glue to dry.  (see photos)
  4. Glue the head to the top front of the clothespin.  Allow the glue to dry.  (see photos)
