How to Make a Fox From a Toilet Paper Roll
For this fox craft, start by downloading and printing the fox template.
Then grab your colored paper. Trace the head piece, ears and tail patterns onto the orange paper.
Then trace the neck fur, face and tail tip onto the white paper.
Next, trace the inner ear areas onto the pink paper. The nose from the black paper and the legs from brown.
Cut out all the pieces and set them aside.
Now assemble the tail by attaching the white tail tip to the end of the main tail piece.
Attach the pink inner ears onto the center of the main ear pieces and the face area onto the bottom of the head cutout like shown below.
Next, attach the eyes and nose to the white face area to create your fox's face.
Then glue the ears to the top of the head.
To finish the fox's face, use a black marker to draw around the eyes, add dots for whiskers and a cute smile.
Next, cut out a piece of orange paper big enough to wrap around your toilet paper roll and trim off any excess.
But don't glue it down yet.
Lay the orange paper flat and attach the fox's legs near the bottom of the center of the paper as shown below.
Then attach the fur about an inch above the legs.
Next, attach the fox's head right above the fur. It should stick above the square piece.
Now wrap your fox around the toilet paper roll and glue it down.
Apply a small amount of glue to the base of the tail, and attach it to the side of the toilet paper roll, allowing the rest of the tail to hang to the side.
Let all the glue dry completely, and admire your adorable toilet paper roll fox craft!
