DIY: Container Creations
Read on for a quick DIY tutorial on creating a dog out of a cascade container. Use ‘Bingo the dog’ for tons of learning games and add a bit of fun to practicing basic skills. This sweet dog can also be used as a container for your Valentine cards! You can read about my inspiration for creating Container Creations here.
- Plastic Container- I used a Cascade container
- Foam or Felt
- Fluffy Dusters (I used blue & white dusters from the Dollar Store)
- Large Google Eyes
- Hot Glue Gun & Hot Glue
- Optional- Bells and Tag for a Collar
DIY: Bingo the Dog
Step 2: I used dusters (found at the dollar store) to create fluffy ears. Remove the dusters from the handles and you are ready to roll!
Step 5: After attaching the ears to the top of the container, I cut out a white base for the dog’s face. I wanted the dog to have a cute, spotted face, so I cut out a large circle to surround one of the eyes, Hot glue the face and eyes to the container.
Step 8: I added a fun metallic ribbon around the container. This created a collar for Bingo! I attached two bells and a metal tag to the “collar”. I added an address label to the tag and wrote my dog’s name onto the tag. I love this, because I can change the tag with the activity.
