2. Color the giraffe and then cut it out. Fold the giraffe in half from the tail end to head. With the giraffe still folded in half fold down the neck at both slanted lines both backward and forwards as shown in the picture.
3. Unfold the giraffe and fold up the neck as shown in the picture.
4. Press down on the middle fold and up on the slanted fold to fold up the neck as show in the picture.
5. Crease the knobbed horns along the sides so they stick out. Glue on the ears. Glue the top of the head together just above the eyes. Glue on the tail and spread out the legs so the giraffe stands up.
This cute little giraffe was made from wool roving (unspun wool) using a needle felting technique. Wool is wound into ball and tube shapes and then poked repeatedly with a felting needle to condense the wool and sculpt it into the desired shape.
Foam Marshmallows, wooden dowels for the legs, neck, and tail, glue, yellow fun foam, magic markers, and paint.
How to make:
1. Glue two marshmallows together for the body.
2. Cut dowels to make five pieces that are 2 1/2" for the legs and tail, cut one dowel 3 1/2" for the neck and two pieces that are one inch for the horns. Use a pointy stick or large needle to poke holes in the marshmallows for the legs, tail, neck and horns. Insert the dowels.
3. Cut ear shapes from yellow fun foam and glue them to the head as shown.
4. Paint the giraffe's body yellow and the inside of the ears red or pink. Use a brown marker to color in the spots and draw on the face.
1. Use a puzzle piece for the head and half a craft stick for the neck. Paint them with acrylic paints or color them with permanent markers. Use a permanent marker to draw in the details. If you use markers that aren't permanent markers draw on the side that doesn't have the shiny coating. The markers will stick better without rubbing off.
2. Glue googly eyes to the head when the paint is dry and then glue the head to the craft stick.
What you will need: Foam Marshmallows, wooden dowel or yarn for the tail, fun foam, glue, magic markers, and paint.
How to make:
1. Glue two marshmallows together to form the body. Cut the corner off of one marshmallow to form the head and glue it to the body as shown in the diagram to the right.
2. Use the leg Pattern (PDF Pattern) to cut four legs from fun foam. Fold Side A and B in together so they are overlapping each other about 1/4". Glue Side A to side B using a hot melt glue gun. Glue the legs to the body as shown. Use a pointy stick or large needle to poke holes in the marshmallows for the legs and tail. Insert the dowels in the holes. (Printing Problems?)
3. Cut the ears from fun foam and glue to the head. Paint the hippo. Use a black marker to draw in the
