Thread pipe cleaner through back and fold
Cut a pipe cleaner in half, fold each half in half and wrap the half way mark on the bend of the back threaded pipe cleaner.
Cut another pipe cleaner in half, thread pipe cleaner through backs of ears and curl into horn shape
Cut felt triangles, matching the back threaded pipe cleaner’s shape.
Blanket stitch felt along each pipe
Cut jaggedly at the base of the felt wing.
