✨ Step 1: Making Sized Strips
The first step involves choosing the right color combination to make the caterpillar craft. Once you have chosen the colors for the paper caterpillar craft, you can now cut wide strips of the colored paper. These colored strips of paper will become the base for the body of the paper caterpillar craft.
✨ Step 2: Making Loops From The Strips
When you have cut all the strips of equal size, you can start by making the strip loops. These loops are really easy to make. Just circle the strips and make a loop with the strip. Seal the loop with a stapler. This is the base of the paper caterpillar craft.
✨ Step 3: Adding More Strips
Now when you have made the first loop for the paper caterpillar craft, you can move to increase the length of the paper caterpillar craft. Now take the paper strip of another color and loop it through the previously looped strip. Pass the strips through the middle of the previously made and secured loop.
✨ Step 4: Making Another Loop
Once passed through the middle of the previously made loop, place the strip in the middle. The strip should be equally visible on both sides of the previously made loop.
✨ Step 5: Making More Loops
When the strip is exactly in the middle of the previously drawn loop, gather the ends together and secure them together. This makes for a new loop in the paper caterpillar craft. Now you have two loops. Now take a strip from the first color bundle and pass it through the second loop. Place it in the middle and secure it’s ends together to form one more loop.
✨ Step 6: Joining The Loops Together
As you go on adding one loop after the other, you will get a beautiful length of the paper caterpillar craft. You must take care to loop in alternate colored strips. This makes sure that you get a pretty paper caterpillar craft body. Staple pins must be secured well in place.
✨ Step 7: Completing The Paper Caterpillar Craft Loops
As you go on adding alternating colored loops to the paper caterpillar craft body, you will get a beautiful body for the caterpillar. When you are happy with the length of the paper caterpillar craft, you can stop adding more loops to the paper caterpillar craft. This looks pretty already.
✨ Step 8: Making The Face For The Caterpillar
Now when we have completed the body of the paper caterpillar craft, we will move to the face of the paper caterpillar craft. You require a light-coloured paper. You can choose the lighter shade out of the two colors used to make the body of the paper caterpillar craft. Cut out a circle from this colored sheet of paper. Take two eyes stickers and stick them onto the face of the paper caterpillar. You have the face of your paper Caterpillar.
✨ Step 9: Adding A Mouth To The Caterpillar
A paper caterpillar will also need a mouth to feed itself. We will be using a red or pink-coloured paper to make the mouth of the paper caterpillar. Cut out a small-sized semicircle from the red or pink paper. Stick this red semicircle on the paper caterpillar face. This becomes the pretty little mouth for the paper caterpillar.
✨ Step 10: Adding Antennas
Caterpillars do have antennas. This paper caterpillar will be incomplete without the antennas on its head. Using the same paper as used for the face of the paper caterpillar, we will be making the antennas for the paper caterpillar. Draw two antennas on the colored sheet and cut them using a pair of scissors. Glue these antennas to the top of the head of the paper caterpillar.
✨ Step 11: Add Some Details
Your paper caterpillar face is almost ready. Take a black sharpie pen and add some eyebrows and eyelashes to this pretty paper caterpillar craft. These small details add life to this paper caterpillar craft. Now stick this beautiful caterpillar face to the caterpillar body. Now your paper caterpillar craft is ready to rock your kid’s room and add color to it in the most beautiful way.
