Step 15

For the tunnel circle cover fold the little tab over once you added adhesive and insert it into the tunnel until it is squared up and bend down as shown. If you want grill marks in your grill you can score them or you can add little strips of paper. Score the short end of the grill about 1/4 inch or where you want your grill to lay on the ground. Adhere to the bottom side of the tunnell. Add tires and axels if desired. Finish decorating
