I pledge allegiance...to my growing blockhead collection!
Finish the hat piece next.
Trace the entire hat shape onto the blue card stock. Cut it out, distress the edges, and then adhere it onto your wood/chipboard hat cutout.
Cut the top portion of the hat from the red paper, a stripe from the white, and a star from the yellow. Distress edges and adhere onto the blue hat piece going red, then white, then the star.
Next, finish the nose/mustache and eyebrow pieces by either paper covering or painting. Distress the edges with the brown or black ink pad. The mustache piece is cut from the white card stock and then glued to the back of the nose.
Using the yarn and glue gun, add loops of yarn to the back of the nose piece to form the beard.
Start at one side and work your way across to the other. You can go back and forth as many times as you'd like to achieve the thickness you want.
(You can then either leave the loop in tact or cut them.)
Glue everything into place...
Center the nose between the cheeks.
Place the hat onto the base top about 1/2 an inch down, and then add the eyebrows, gluing them onto the hat. I also added a few strands of yarn for hair.
Finish it off by using the black paint to dot the eyes just above the nose, when dry add white highlights and your Uncle Sam is ready for his debut!!
