Materials that you will need...
4 tall, round corks
a cone-shaped cork
a little cork
a red pipe cleaner
black gouache paint, shellac
a large needle
Paint the little cork with black gouache. Let it dry.
Put on a coat of shellac. Let the shellac dry and
put on a second coat.
Glue the 4 round corks together.

Bend the legs and tail into natural shapes (see
