INSTRUCTIONS:
  1. Place the coffee filter or tissue paper on a newspaper and decorate with the washable markers. Once colored in, spritz with the water until the colors run together. Set aside and allow time to dry.
  2. Cut out a 2″ x 6″ piece of construction paper and fold in half so that it measures 1″ x 6″.
  3. Punch holes in the folded paper. It is ok if they overlap, just be careful not to cut the paper in half.
  4. Trim one edge of the folded paper to create a point in the center as shown.
  5. Lay the construction paper on top of the dry coffee filter. Trace and cut out the same shape.
  6. Dot one side of the construction paper with glue and attach to the coffee filter.
  7. Add strips of paper bag at the base of the Indian Corn.
