Leo the Love Struck Lion!
Roaaar! Leo the Love Struck Lion is here to steal your heart. When Maggy contacted me to be a guest blogger as a part of the 31 days of love series, I literally jumped with glee! I have been following kidscraft 101 for some time now, and am thrilled to bits to be a part of such an awesome project.
My name is Heidi and I am a mum of two, cheeky and very busy little guys. We are getting creative and covered in paint most days, aiming to make the most ordinary days, extraordinary over at our blog The Harmony Tree House.
The inspiration behind our ADORABLE friend Leo, is a stuffed Lion my husband gave to me all those years ago, on our very first Valentines Day date. He is a fluffy little critter with super big eyes, and he clutches a little purple heart in his mouth. He lives in our playroom, where he is loved dearly.
Toilet Paper Roll Lion: To make Leo for yourself you will need:
- Five toilet rolls
- Thick card
- Yellow and pink paint
- Pink and red felt
- Two googly eyes
- One pink pom pom
How to make a TP Roll Lion – Leo The Love Struck Lion
Cut the Corner off one end of two TP rolls
To make a body glue the rolls to either end of another roll using hot glue. It should look as shown below. they should slide in to one another.
Cut a ring from another roll. Glue it to the body, to make the neck.
Cut the corner off the last roll and glue it to the neck. This is the head. Add a circle of thick card to the end of the head. Add some ears.
Paint the Lion yellow. Cut Leo his mane and tail and the heart he carries from the felt.
Once dry, glue his eyes on, his pink pompom nose, and his mane.
Hope you adore this little Toilet Paper Roll Lion for Valentine’s Day as much as we do. We think he is ADORABLE!!!
