Materials that you will need to make a dog…

  • 4 tall, round corks
  • a cone-shaped cork
  • a little cork
  • a red pipe cleaner
  • red felt
  • black gouache paint, shellac
  • a large needle
  • scissors
  • glue
STEP 1

Construction

Paint the little cork with black gouache. Let it dry. Put on a coat of shellac. Let the shellac dry and put on a second coat.

STEP 2

Glue the 4 round corks together.

STEP 3

Put on the legs which are 4 pieces of pipe cleaner each 1 inch (2.5 cm.) long. It is easier to push the pipe cleaner firmly into the cork if you make a hole with the large needle first.

STEP 4

Put on the tail which is 2-1/2 inches (6 cm.) long.
Glue the little black cork nose on the head, which is the cone-shaped cork.

STEP 5

Make the neck from a piece of pipe cleaner and stick it into the head and into the body.

STEP 6

Cut out the ears from red felt and glue them in place (the pattern is in drawing 2).

STEP 7

Bend the legs and tail into natural shapes (see drawing 2)
