Paint the clothespin brown. Let it dry.
Glue the eyes near the end of the clothespin on the side that pinches closed.
Cut a chenille stem into 2 pieces. One should be about 3- to 4-inches long and the other should be about 7- to 8-inches long. Near the eye area, when clothespin is closed, there is a small circle; slide the shorter piece of chenille stem through the hole and bend it to be the the front legs. Secure it with some glue.
Fold the longer chenille stem piece in half and then fold down both ends so it resembles an 'M'. Use glue to glue the chenille stem 'M' just behind the spring of the clothespin to be the hind legs.
