Stately Giraff with "no roll" Handicraft Clothespins

  • 2 Forster "NO-ROLL" Clothespins
  • two 1" long sections of a 1" diameter dowel (or use 1 1/4" beads with flattened ends)
  • one 1/2" x 5/16" wooden peg
  • 1 craft stick
  • 2 flat toothpicks
  • 1 brown chenille stem
  • two 10mm eyes
  • white or wood glue for glueing the wood parts together
  • yellow paint
  • brown construction paper
  • craft glue for adding the chenille stem
  1. For the neck, cut a Craft Stick 3 1/2" long and trim the cut-off end as shown: giraf
  2. giraf 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. Paint the GIRAFFE yellow. Trim with brown circles that have been made with a paper punch.
  7. 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.
