To transform your cheese ball into a monster, cut one end off of a cucumber. Cut that end in half and place in front to make the feet.

Tip: use a toothpick and draw your shape on the pepper before you cut. That way you have a line to follow. You can make the mouth whatever shape you like. There is no wrong way to do this step, so have fun!
