How to Make a Chester the Crab
Don't be shellfish this summer; invite your friends over for a beach-themed celebration and make these adorable Chester the Crab party favors! They are easy and fun to make and perfect for any kid who loves the ocean and its animals!
Glue pom to shell
Glue the 1 1/2" pom in the shell opening, allowing some of the pom to protrude out.
Add head and face
Glue the 1" pom to the front of the shell to form a head. Then glue your 1/2" poms to the topp of the 1" pom for eyes and the .28" pom in between for a nose.
Add eyes and mouth
Glue your google eyes to the front of the 1/2" poms and a piece of scrap yarn for a mouth.
Take 2 chenille stems and twist them together in the middle, curl the tips and adjust for legs and glue them to the underside of the shell.
Form pincher arms
Cut off 2 bumps from the bump chenille and fold them in half. Take 1 chenille stem and fold in half, fold both tips to the center, and slide the folded bumps onto each fold and twist the stem to hold the bump in place. Glue pincher arms to the underside of the shell.
