Things You'll Need

Step 1

Cut a circle of brown fur to fit on the lid of the cookie tin Be sure to cut it slightly larger than the lid, so you have about 1/4-inch of extra fabric to glue down around the side of the rim. Hot glue it in place on the lid.

Step 2

Cut a long strip of brown fur and glue it around the side of the cookie tin.

Step 3
