Heart Shaped Animal – Puppy Dog
This cute puppy is made from hearts of different sizes and colors. We then used some heart shaped stickers for the spots on this little doggie.
How to Make Heart Shaped Animals – Puppy
The easiest way to create your hearts is to fold the craft foam sheets in half then cut along the folded edge. Cut just half a heart shape.
Take a 8.5″ by 5.5″ sheet of foam and fold the two short edges together. Cut out your heart making it a fatter heart. This is the dog’s body.
Take another sheet of foam and cut out another fat heart but smaller than the first. This is the puppy’s head.
Using a different color of foam, fold in half with the two long ends together. Cut out a skinnier heart and cut the heart in half. These are the two ears.
Using the same color as the ears, cut out two smaller hearts for the dog’s paws and one for the tail.
Cut out a small black heart for the dog’s nose and a small heart using red for the tongue.
Now that you have all the heart shapes cut out it is time to put your puppy together. Take the largest heart (the body) and place it on the table with the point facing up.
Now take the head and place it on top of the body with the point facing up. Glue on two wiggle eyes, the heart shaped nose and tongue. You can also cut out a heart shaped bow and add some ribbon to dress up your Valentine puppy.
Take the two heart halves (the ears) and glue these to the back of the head. Now glue on the puppies paws and tail.
That’s all there is to making this easy yet fun Valentine puppy craft. We added some fun heart stickers to give this little puppy some spots.
