Children’s Crafts: Paper Mache Lizards : Paper Mache Lizard: Making Legs

If you've got extra hanging off you can alwaysjust snip it off once it's tightly wrapped.

Like, that's not going to make it over tothe other side so I'm going to cut that.

Wrap it up so that it doesn't have a sharp edgeon it.

This is really a part where parents can be helpful.

We're going to wrap anotherleg over here; just like we did before.

We're going to do that for all four legs; just likethat.

Wrapping it around and again this one can be snipped.

We can sometimes get awaywith doing one pipe cleaner for both legs.

I'll show you how we do that by wrapping oneside, looping, wrapping it again and we're just going to take it right over to the otherside, underneath, wrapping it around and then looping again.

So, there that gives us ourlegs and we've got a little extra there that can be cut off.

Now we're going to put onthe tail.

It's not important that we have pieces coming up over the legs that'll comeon; they'll wrap fine with the papier-m?ch?.

So, now what we're going to do for the tailis we're going to just attach a paper or a pipe cleaner right to the end of the body,loop it back up, whoops, loop it back up and we're going to pull it a little tight justto give it some shape.

Just like that.

Now we have our pipe cleaner armature.
