Learn how to make dapper felt and styrofoam foxes in only a few minutes. This fun fall craft is sure to keep your kids entertained and add flair to your living room.
You and your kids are sure to fall for these crafty foxes. For this project, you'll need felt, scissors, a pencil, templates, felt glue, 4-1/2 inch Styrofoam sphere and 9-inch Styrofoam cone, a skewer, straight pins, push pins and binder clips. First, download, print and cut out fox templates from parents.com/fox. Trace and cut each piece from the appropriate color of felt. Next, mark a point on each pole of the Styrofoam sphere with a pencil. Glue on the 1st head pin off from point to point pressing firmly at the edges. Repeat with additional panels overlapping them slightly until the sphere is covered. Pin the facial features to the ball then glue them into place. For the ears, fold each triangle in half. Add a dab of glue to the crease and fold together with a binder clip until the glue dries. Glue the ears to top of the head. And then, connect the head to the body with the skewer. Dress your foxes in your precut clothing pieces. Decorative push pins are the perfect way to make buttons. Your foxy family will add [unk] decoration to any room.
