Let’s start!

Step by Step Instructions

Body

Put some glue over one toilet paper roll and wrap the roll in white cardboard.

Apply some glue at the end of the cardboard. Press firmly with your fingers until the glue is set.

Step 1-2-3-4

Cut out the excess paper.

Step 5

Head

Take the second toilet paper roll and cut 1/3 of it using scissors.

This is how the roll should look like. Save the smaller part for later.

Put some glue over the second toilet paper roll and wrap the roll in white cardboard.

Apply some glue at the end of the cardboard and press firmly with your fingers until the glue is set.

Step 8-9-10-11

Cut the excess paper out.

Step 12

Neck

Cut the smaller piece so you get a stripe as shown on the picture. Cut the stripe in half.

Step 13

Put some glue and roll the stripe and press with your fingers until the glue is set.

Step 14-15

This is how it should look like.

Step 16

Wrap the small piece in white cardboard and cut the excess paper.

Apply some glue and press with the fingers until it dries.

Step 17-18

This is how it should look like.

Step 19

Take the three rolls (body, head, and neck) and mark them with stripes using a pencil.

Step 20

Color some of the stripes in black, and leave the other stripes empty.

Step 21

Tongue

Take the rest of the toilet paper roll and cut out a tongue. Paint it with pink acrylic color and let it dry aside.

Step 22-23

Nose

Cut out two small circles out of the white cardboard.

Step 24

Place them on the zebra’s face as a nose.

Step 25

Eyes

Glue the googly eyes on the face as shown on the picture.

Step 26

Glue the tongue on.

Step 27

Legs

Take one black and one white chenille stick, cut them in three equal parts and swirl them. Repeat this with two more sticks.

Step 28

You should have four legs by now.

Step 29

Tail

Take one black chenille stick, bend it in half and start swirling the ends.

Leave an “O” shape at the end. This is the tail.

Step 30

Apply the legs using hot glue.

Step 31

Here we have the body standing. See, we made four feet by twisting the edges of the sticks.

Step 32

Attach the tail on using hot glue.

Step 33

Glue the neck on the body.

Step 34

Attach the head on the neck using hot glue.

Step 35

Mane

Take one chenille stick and bend it in half.

Step 37

Take another chenille stick, fold it in triangles and attach it at the end of the head and on the body.

Step 38
