designed by Shirley Burgess
- For the neck, cut a Craft Stick 3 1/2" long and trim the cut-off end as shown:
- Glue the neck to the flat end of one of the 1" dowel sections. Glue the wooden peg to the other flat end, as shown, to form the snout.
- For the horns, cut two toothpick sections 1/2" long. Make two holes, about 1/4" apart in the top of the head using a hammer and a 1 1/2" finishing nail. Another method is using a small electric craft or hobby drill using a 1 116" - 3/32" drill bit.
- Cut a section 3/4" long from the Craft Stick and then cut the section in half lengthwise to make two ears. Glue the ears to the upper sides of the head.
- Gue one clothespin to each end of the other 1" dowel sections to form the body and legs. Glue the neck to one end of the body.
- Paint the GIRAFFE yellow. Trim with brown circles that have been made with a paper punch.
- For the tail, cut a 1 1/2" piece of brown chenille stem and glue it to the back of the body. Glue the eyes to the head and mark the nostrils with a black marker.
