Being a stay at home mom, I am always looking for activities to keep the kids busy. I live on and for Pinterest for CHEAP and easy projects. I am a creative and that’s what I do best…..create. I’m going to enjoy making arts and crafts more than them. Off to Michaels we go.
I know I specifically said don’t ask me for SHAT, but $50 bucks later.
Like frames 40% off…
I LOST my mind!
I’m starting to think this was more fun!
All you will need are
- Pool noodles
- Wiggle eyes
- Hot glue and gun
- String or twine
- (2) Felt squares 12 x 12 per noodle
First, bend the tip of the noodle down towards the opposite end about halfway down. You can make it shorter or longer to the size you would like and tie a string around it.
This hook will be the horse’s nose so tie the string pretty tight to hold the nose in place.
Next, cut your felt squares like so. There are other options such as cutting fringes along the edge as well for a front horse mane.
You’re almost there! Do the same for the mane. Fold the bigger cut out in half. Place glue down the middle first and attach to the noodle. Then add glue along the edges of the noodle and glue the felt to the horse accordingly. We used a fringed mane and added it to the front.
BAM!! All done and a fun activity for the kids.
Oh well, I tried and he’ll have it when he’s ready!!
Really simple see!!
