Hungry Caterpillar

Well, I thought this was just too cute to pass up.  Only problem.... I have no idea how I'm going to use them!  I was thinking of perhaps a Book Worm Birthday party.  The leaf inside each jar would be the invite.  I think this would be great for a 1st Birthday Party.

I decided to try and make one with purple antennae to look more Eric Carle-ish.  But decided to stick with the brown ones.

Very fast and easy to put together.  I used a hot glue gun to attach 7 -  1/2" green pom poms.  Then attached a 1 inch red pom pom.  I cut out small yellow eyes and used a green marker to draw the eyeballs.  I traced leaf shape onto textured paper, cut out and then used my scallop punch to create munch bites!  Using the metal lid I traced a circle onto patterned paper and inserted under the metal rim of the canning jar.
