Clothespin Giraffe

Use wood clothespins and recycled materials to create a long legged giraffe!



Step 1. Gather your supplies.

Step 2.

Cut a cardboard tube into 3 pieces:  large (neck), medium (body), small (head), as shown.

Step 3.

To assemble the body of the giraffe, follow steps 2-13 of the Recycled Pony Sculpture. *Omit step 12.  Add another set of clothespins to make the legs longer on your giraffe, as shown.

Step 4.

Stuff a large yellow Pom in the opening for the head and another in the body. Add glue to secure the poms in place.

Step 5.

Paint the giraffe with acrylic paint. Tip: Use the large foam brush to easily make the spots.

Step 6.

To finish the giraffe, add hair and tail using Fuzzy Sticks and glue on Wiggly Eyes.

Use the above steps to create other clothespin animals, like the zebra design seen here!
