9. You will mostly likely still have left over sock. Take the top part of the leftover sock and excess sock and fold it down on the top ball and flip the rim of the sock up, making it look like a hat.

10. Using your hot glue gun, add glue under the “hat” to hold it in place. Then, add hot glue in between the body layer to hold each circle in place.
