Craft Stick Santa Dog Craft
- Craft sticks
- Cardstock – brown, black, red, white
- Black sharpie
- Small googly eyes
- 1” circle paper punch
Begin by positioning 3 craft sticks in a triangle pattern on a sheet of brown cardstock.
Glue in place. Let dry.
Trim the excess brown cardstock away from the triangle.
From the black or extra brown cardstock, cut two floppy ears and a tail shape. See image above for shapes. You can add spots with the black sharpie, or leave as is.
Adhere the ears to the back of the craft stick triangle, about 1/3 of the way down or so. Glue at an angle so they’re sticking out the sides.
Now cut a triangle of red cardstock to fit the top of the craft stick triangle. Glue in place above the ears and trim away excess.
Cut a strip of the white paper and punch a circle from the white paper as well.
Glue the strip of white paper across the bottom of the hat and attach the circle to the tip.
Add googly eyes. Draw a nose and mouth with black sharpie.
Punch 4 circles from the brown or black cardstock.
Add 3 lines with the black sharpie and glue two of the circles to the front of the triangle, two to the back, with half the circles over the edge. Let dry.
Once the glue on the circles is dry, bend the half that’s over the edge up. It should now stand. Also, glue the tail to the back of the triangle, above the paws.
Fold the ears over the front of the triangle and glue in place.
So cute! We love how they stand up, but you could also add a string on back for a super sweet Christmas ornament! And be sure to find more fun Christmas crafts at Our Kid Things!
