4. Enlarge and/or trace the patterns. Cut out the shapes. Trace around the pattern pieces on the appropriate color of crafting foam. Cut out the shapes using scissors or pinking shears as desired.

5. Glue the face pieces in place. Punch a hole from foam for the wart on the nose. Glue in place. Let the glue dry.
