How to Make a Dog Chenille Craft
Woof woof! If you are a dog-lover, this is the perfect craft for you. This Dog Chenille Craft is adorable and will give your child their own furry pet to play with! Get started on this dog-tastic craft today!
Bend a white chenille stem in half - hold the stem at the bent center and bend it again. At this bend, seperate stem and form a V. Make a loop at each end for the feet. Repeat steps with another white stem for the back legs.
Bend a black stem to form 3" loops. Then twist end of the stem around center of the loops. Leave remaining stem portion straight. Squeeze the loops closed and bend them down.
Take a black stem and wrap the end tightly around stem below ears. Then coil brown stem 3 times to form the head. Bend stem under the head and wrap around ear stem once. Seperate these stems to form a V-towards front and back.
Stack the 2 bent portions of the legs together. (This will be the body - make sure feet point in the same direction) Place the head on top of front legs and twist forward stem under and around the body. Wrap the remaining black stem around the body, under the back legs and up to form a 3" tail. Glue on eyes and nose and then tie a ribbon bow around neck.
