  • Cut a section of three attached cups from the egg carton.

  • Once the cups are dry, use the sharp pencil to poke two holes, side by side, on top of the first cup where the antennae will go.
  • From inside the cup, poke both ends of the pipe cleaner through the pencil holes (one end through each hole) for the antennae.
  • Cut or curl the ends of the antennae to make them the length you want.
  • Using the pencil, poke one hole on each side of each cup to make a total of six holes.
