My littlest one is fascinated with elephants. All animals, really, but especially elephants. And so, this Craft Stick Heart Elephant Craft was inspired by him and his love for all things elephant.
This absolutely adorable elephant craft’s ears are made with hearts, which is fitting given how much my son loves elephants. For more animal crafts made with hearts be sure to check out our Heart Lion Craft, Paper Heart Mice Craft, and our Made with Hearts Penguins Valentine’s Day Craft.
To make this Craft Stick Heart Elephant Craft you will need cardstock in red and other assorted colors, craft sticks, small googly eyes, scissors, and glue.
Craft Stick Heart Elephant Craft
- Cardstock – red, other assorted colors
- Craft sticks
- Googly eyes, small
Begin by making a heart out of a sheet of cardstock. We used grey, orange, and purple for our elephants, but feel free to make yours any color.
Simply fold the sheet in half and cut out your heart shape. The size depends on how big you want the ears.
Also cut out a circle and long rectangle shape from the same color cardstock.
Now cut out 2 smaller hearts from the red cardstock.
Glue the red hearts inside the larger hearts.
Then glue the hearts together at their point like the image above.
Glue the circle in the center.
Accordion fold the long rectangle.
Glue the rectangle in the center of the circle for the trunk.
And adhere the googly eyes above the trunk.
Finally, glue the elephant shape to the craft stick for creative play.
With our Craft Stick Heart Elephant’s folded paper trunk and large heart ears, this is a craft that will make you go wild!
