The size of the animals will depend on the size of the corks and beads used. If you need to cut the cork, cut with a sharp knife or razor blade, and smooth any unevenness with sandpaper. Pierce the holes for threading the wire with a thick needle or a special piercer. Glue the felt or feathers together, np. wikol. If need be, Paint the cork with water or oil paints (look photo).
