Children's Crafts - How to make Animal Head Holders

All projects are FREE, however, donations towards the upkeep of Walkabout Crafts are much appreciated. Please click below to make a donation.

Children's Crafts - Animal Head Holders from www.walkaboutcrafts.comThe cow's head is designed for holding balls of string. It can be attached to the wall or a notice board. Other animals can be made in the same way but from different shaped cartons.

You will need:
Plastic box - an ice cream box or large margarine tub is ideal.
Black, white, pink poster paint
Saucer for mixing paint
A paint brush
A few sheets of stiff paper or an old greetings card
2 beads for eyes
glue or sticky tape
scissors
chalk
ball of string
2 drawing pins

1. Wash the carton to remove any grease and labels. Paint the outside with two coats of white paint (tip - add a small amount of washing up liquid to the paint to help it stick to waterproof cartons)

2. Look carefully at the picture. With the opening of the box facing away from you, mark out the mouth and areas to be painted with chalk. This can be rubbed off if you make a mistake. Cut out the cows mouth.

3. Paint the nose pink. Paint the black areas. When the nose has dried, paint the nostrils.

4. To make the ears and horns, cut out two strips of card for horns and two sausage shapes for ears. Paint them black. Fix them to the back of the box with glue or sticky tape.

5. To make the eyes, stick two beads to the carton with glue.

6. Place the string in the box and pull the end out through the cow's mouth.

7. Attach the head to the wall by pushing a drawing pin through the cows ears.
