Steps to make this W for Walrus Craft:
Print the Craft template on an A4 or Letter Sized paper. Cut out all the parts – the dark brown head, the light brown snout parts and the nose. Use these cutout templates as your reference points and trace onto Felt. We used a 2 mm stiff felt to make this craft. Alternately, you could use construction paper or craft foam in similar colors.
Glue the face to the CD first. Then add the snout and nose, but leave the bottom parts of the snout unglued.
Insert the ice cream sticks under the snout and stick them. Add the whiskers, the googly eyes and you are done.
