Horse Paper Craft Tutorial
Let’s get crafting! Follow the directions below to create this art project.
1. Cut the sides off of the paper plates. Cut one of the sides in half and set them aside for later. These will be your horse ears.
2. Cut a large oval for the horse’s nose out of construction paper. Draw on what looks like a smiley face for the horse’s nostrils and mouth.
3. Paint the paper plate pieces the color you want your horse to be.
4. Once the paint is dry, glue the ears to the back top of your paper plate shape, and glue the mouth on the front bottom.
5. Cut several strips of yarn and glue them on the center of the top of the horse’s head for his mane.
6. Glue on the googly eyes to finish your horse paper plate craft.
Aren’t they great?
You can change the horse’s appearance simply by swapping paint and yard colors. Make a variety of different color combos! These horses would look great hanging up around the barn, your house, or your classroom.
