Cardboard Llamas

With a couple cardboard tubes and some thin cardboard or cardstock, we can make llamas!

Step 1

Gather supplies! You will need:

  • Scissors
  • Thin cardboard or card stock
  • Two cardboard toilet paper tube or tubes if you want to make more than one llama
  • Paint or colored paper
  • A pencil
  • Glue (tacky glue, white glue, or if a parent can help you can use a glue gun)
  • A black marker

Supplies you may also want but do not need:

  • Felt or multi-colored paper

Step 2

Take a piece of thin cardboard or cardstock and your cardboard tubes and start to paint. We put a coat of gesso on first. Make sure you have extra thin cardboard or cardstock to make ears.

Step 3

Take a piece of thin cardboard or cardstock and your cardboard tubes and start to paint. We put a coat of gesso on first. Make sure you have extra thin cardboard or cardstock to make ears.

Step 4

Make marks on the painted and dried cardboard tube where your legs will attach. You can pinch the tube together to make it easier to cut slits for your legs. Take your extra cardboard or cardstock and cut out triangles for ears. Glue them to your head and let them dry.

Step 5

Insert your legs!

If you want to make a blanket for your llama, this is a good time! You can also add other marker fur to the body or draw on designs. We made a blanket out of felt.

Take your black marker and draw on your eyes and neck fur.

Next, take your scissors and create a slit for your neck and insert. Your llama is done!

Finished

What else looks like a llama? A giraffe! A horse! You can turn this into a lot of different animals. What does your llama look like? Share your creations at ce@pcad.edu or tag us on Instagram @pcad_ce
