Octopus Craft

  • Single glove
  • Needle and thread
  • Dry rice
  • Hot glue
  • Large pom-pom
  • Buttons
  • Wire
  • Ribbon
  • Felt

1 .First, tuck the thumb inside the glove and use a needle and thread to sew it shut. Fill the glove with dry rice, or dry beans than tuck the cuff inside.
2. Stitch all along the cuff's edge, then pull the thread tightly to close the top.

3. Sew or hot-glue a large pom-pom to the top of the glove. At the base of the octopus -- where the glove's fingers attach to the palm -- pinch the sides together and sew a few stitches to hold them, as shown. This will help make the body rounder..
4. Attach buttons to the undersides of the four fingers with hot glue. Sew or hot-glue on button eyes and a felt mouth.

Other things you can add are

~Make earrings by threading stacks of buttons onto pieces of wire.

~Tie ribbon around the pom-pom for a head scarf

~Add a felt brim to the pom-pom for a hat.
