Remove the cap and hanger from the unbreakable ornament and set aside. Pour some of the

Coffee Bean brown paint into the ornament. Cover the hole with a folded paper towel and then shake the ornament. You want to swirl the paint around so that the brown paint coats the inside of the ornament. When the entire inside is coated, set the ornament inside of the paper cup to dry the paint. Place the ornament in the cup so that the excess paint drips out. Rotate the ornament every so often to insure that the paint coats the whole inside of the ornament. Let dry.

Use the pictured sample as a guide and paint the face of the monkey on the outside of the ornament with the Brown Sugar Multi-surface paint. Let dry.

Add the eyes onto the face with mini glue dots. Use the black Sharpie marker to draw in the nose and mouth. Trace and cut out the ears from foamie. Use the glue gun to attach an ear to each side of the monkey’s head.

Curl one end of the brown chenille stem. Glue the straight end to the back of the ornament towards the bottom.
optional: Add a tag that says “Year of the Monkey 2016” and hang from the tail.

Put the ornament cap and hanger back onto the ornament. Tie the ribbon around the cap and make a bow.
