P for Pig Craft with Printable Template
This adorable pig craft needs a printable template, Felt and an old CD to make. You could easily substitute the Felt with Foam or Construction paper, even cardstock.
Supplies needed to make this P for Pig Craft:
- Printable Template
- Dark Pink Felt or Construction Paper or craft foam sheets
- Light Pink Felt or Construction Paper or craft foam sheets
- Black Felt or Construction Paper or craft foam sheets
- An old CD
- Glue Gun or Glue stick if using paper.
- Googly Eyes
Steps to make this P for Pig Craft:
Print the Craft template on an A4 or Letter Sized paper. Cut out all the parts – the light pink body and ears, the dark pink parts as well as the black mouth.
Use these cutout templates as your reference points and trace onto Felt. We used a 2mm stiff felt to make this craft. Alternately, you could use construction paper or craft foam in similar colors.
Use a Glue gun ( when using felt) to secure the pig’s body on top of an old CD. Glue the dark pink nose and ears. Finish up with the dark pink inner ears, the nostrils and mouth. Make sure you stick the ears to the back of the pig’s head.
Add the eyes and your pig craft is ready.
