Cut out all the shapes from the printables. Tip: you’ll need 2 copies of the corn/ears to pair with only 1 sheet of the nose/eyes.
When rolling the corn up, start rolling the sides without the tabs in first. Roll as tight as you can, then do your best to make the cone flat and even with the 3 tabs evenly spaced.
Blow up your balloons. No need to use helium as they will be displayed using the balloon sticks.
Begin applying double sided tape to your printable pieces and apply them to the balloon. Tip: slightly crease the ears in the center before sticking in place to create a 3D look.
Apply the curling ribbon bunch to the top center of the head first, then the corn on top.
To display at your party, insert the balloon sticks into a piece of floral foam and sit inside a tin.
