The dog is man's best friend..he is loyal and very affectionate to his owner and most people. A pet dog is very determined to please his owner and best friend. We have a dog and he is just as much part of the family as any of the people in our house. We love our dog very much. So it makes sense to me that if you have a pet dog, you might want to make a craft that represents your little doggy. You can make a pet dog out of paper, felt, foam, fabric, or even a jar. There are many creative ideas that you can find on this page that might inspire you to make a great dog craft. Have fun.
This dog is made with empty spool threads, wire, felt, and beads. Take a wire and thread it through the first spoool, and then tie a knot and thread it back into the head of the spool. This is the dog's head. Then come down at a right angle for the dog's neck and put another spool on the wire. Then twist another wire around that wire and put beads on it for the dog's legs. Then bed the wire and put 4 spools ont he wire...then wrap the wire around that wire for teh dog's legs. Tie a knot at the end of the beads. You can use felt for ears...and glue it on. Draw eyes on the dog's face.
Look at the paper diagrams instructions above. Fold Letter A and Lett B four times over. Cout slits in letter 'A' as you see above. These slits for the bend of the neck . To make the legs of the dog, use diagram letter b. fold ov er letter b...for each leg. Fold letter 'c' over for each of the dog's ears. Connect everything together with paper fasteners.
Here is a craft for a stand-up paper dog. You can print out the template here. Just print out this template and then cut it out. You can color it in if you want to. Then just follow the folding directions on the template and that is it, it should stand and look 3-dimensional now.
This craft is to make a puppy doggy money bank and it is made out of an empty frozen juice can. Just empty it and wash it out and let dry. Ask your parents to help you cut a hole at the top of the can. Then just color the sides brown or cover with brown-ish paper or felt and then glue down. Here is a printable dog template. Use this for the front and back of the doggy bank. Glue it to cardboard to make it sturdier and then cut it out and glue to front and back of the frozen juice can. Just make sure that the front and back legs line up correctly so that it will stand straight. Lay it on its side while it dries.
To make the above puppy doggy mask, just print out the dog mask template and follow the directions that are with it.
