Step 1.Tear the green wool roving to pieces, and put them one by one in the cookie cutter. (Just make sure the wool is spreaded evenly in it)
Tips: Press the wool by your fingers, make sure it's even.
Step 2: Start to stab it from the edge.
Put more wool in it.
The shape will felt with the foam, take it off from it. the other side is very fulffy.
Step 3: If you think the thickness is OK, you can flip it over, put it back into the cutter, and stab the other side, pls stab it gently, you don't want to be fulffy with the other side, right?
PS: if you'd like to make it thicker, put more wool in it, repeat step 1-3 until the thickness is OK.
Main part is done!

Step 5: Let's make the trunk. Wrap the coffee wool around the trunk. stab a few times to keep it in place.
