Instructions:

  1. Draw a long oval onto your cardboard and then cut it out.
  2. Cover both sides of the cardboard with yellow felt. Attach with hot glue.
  3. Fold the oval in half to create a taco shell base. Glue a piece of yellow felt to each side to hold the sides of the taco in place.
  4. Create pom-poms out of the brown and green yarn. Glue the brown pom-poms on the bottom and then layer the green pom-poms on top.
  5. Cut small squares of red felt and glue on top of the green pom-poms. This is your pico de gallo.
  6. Create the taco鈥檚 face with black paint and his hat and scarf from red felt or ribbon.
