    3. For your Lincoln toilet paper tube, paint a white "V" under the face for his shirt. For Washington, paint a white collar as you see above with some squiggly lines below and fill them in to represent the frill of his shirt.
    4. Using a small dab of glue or glue dots, add a pair of mini googly eyes to each president.

    7. Accessorize Washington! All he needs is a big wad of cotton stuffing placed inside the top of his "head" and flowing out for his wig!
