With their majestic manes, lions are easily one of our favorite animals in the cat family and we couldn't resist making one!
- Textured Cardboard
- Upcycled Plastic Lids
- Plastic Eyes (optional)
Step 1: Follow the instructions for the mane here.
Step 2: From cardstock, cut a circle for the lion's head - smaller than the mane.
Step 3: Add eyes to the lion's face. We used plastic tops with plastic eyes on top, but cardstock would work as well.
Step 4: Cut a nose and mouth from cardstock, glue to the lion's face.
Step 5: Glue the lion's face to the mane.
Step 6: Cut a circle from textured cardboard. (We used a bowl to trace.)
Step 7: Glue the lion to the circle for easy display.
