How fun are these adorable paper plate flamingos? We had so much fun making these!
It’s been a little while since our last post, The weather has just been so beautiful and we have been spending all of our time having fun outdoors and in the pool! However with the weather turning muggy and thundery today we’ve been back inside and back to crafting. At the moment we’re busy working on some fun animal crafts to decorate little man’s bedroom and these cute paper plate flamingos are a perfect addition!
Here’s what we used
Pink paint and paintbrush
Pink and black paper
How to make a paper plate flamingo
Take the paper plate, cut it in half and paint it using the Pink paint. Put to one side to dry.
Cut out a round head shape with long neck and glue it onto the back of the paper plate.
Cut out two thin L shapes for the legs and glue them onto the back of the paper plate.
Add a Googly eye and a black triangle beak to the flamingo’s head and add some Feathers for the wing to finish it off!
Ted has decided that he wants to decorate his door with animals. So the last few days we’ve been busy crafting some funky foam creatures. This cute little pig is our favourite so far and has taken centre stage to make our diy foam pig door sign. Ill be sharing our other foam animals at somepoint soon so keep your eyes open for those if you’re looking to make a little collection!
You will need
First you will need to cut out the base shape of your pig’s body. Draw a circle and add two rectangles for the legs as shown in the picture above.
Cut out a smaller circle for the pigs head and glue it down on the body.
Give your pig two pointy pink ears and a oval snout.
Now to give your pig his cute little face! Glue on two googy eyes, two nostrils and a smiley mouth. Also draw or stick two little hooves at the bottom of his legs
To make your pig’s curly tail; twist your pink pipe cleaner around a pencil and then stick it in place at the back of your pig and he is finished!
Why not glue your pig to a strip of card or foam and make your very own door sign?
