About this Project
What's black and white and cute all over? Pandas! Create an adorable panda bear family using clay pots!
Create your own, snap a picture, and share using #ACMooreInspired.
Glue the 6 clay saucer to the top of the 6 azalea pot to form head. Glue the 8 clay pot and the 8 clay saucer to form body. To create legs, glue a 3 clay pot and a 3 clay saucer together. Once secure, glue a 2.25 clay pot to the bottom of the 3 pot at a slight angle. Repeat for second leg. To create arms, glue a 1.5 clay pot to the bottom of a 2.25 clay pot at a slight angle. Repeat for second arm. Let dry.
TIP: Use both E6000 glue and hot glue to adhere the clay pots and saucers. The hot glue will secure the pots in place while the E6000 glue dries.
2Paint the head and body white, and the arms and legs black. On the top of the body (narrow end of the pot) paint a black rounded shape that dips lower on the sides and slightly higher in the back.
3Paint the face onto the head. With the 6 saucer on the bottom, paint a black rounded triangle on the rim of the azalea pot for the nose. On either side of the nose, paint a black bean shape for eyes. Hot glue googly eyes into the bean shapes.
4Cut four 3 circles of black craft foam. Glue one circle of foam to the open end of each arm.
5Glue the remaining two circles of felt to the top of the head to create ears. Fold the circle in half, and glue back half of circle to the top of the head.
Use hot glue and E6000 to glue the head to the top of the body. Glue legs and arms onto body.
TIP: Use masking tape to hold arms and legs in place while glue dries.
