Step 1

Using a piece of cardboard, cut out the shape of a stylized frame.

Step 2

Sketch a frame border design and draw over it multiple times with Crayola Metallic Markers.

Step 3

Paint a landscape or backdrop with Crayola Spill-Proof Washable Paint.

Step 4

Draw and cut out an outfit for your animal from cardstock, and add details with Crayola Markers.

Step 5

Glue your animal's outfit onto the frame.

Step 6

Mold and shape your animal's face using Crayola Model Magic OR Crayola Air Dry Clay.

Step 7

Glue your animal's head onto the frame.

Step 8

Attach ribbon to the back of the frame. After glue steps, let frame dry 1-2 hours before hanging.
