    Cutting the Worm Body

    For the body of the worm, cut several circles out of green craft foam (you can use felt or paper instead of craft foam if you like). I cut 6 circles, each one a little smaller than the first. The biggest one was about 2-inches across and all the others went down in size from there. The smallest was about an inch wide.

    Of course, you can skip this step if you like, but I think a little tuft of hair gives the worm a little character. Cut several pieces of ribbon, about an inch and a half long. Glue one end of each ribbon piece to the back, top of the worm's head. Let the glue dry.
