How to Make Your Dragon!

Creative World Art School

These colorful masterpieces are part of Ms. Briana's Anthropology class. Below is a rough sketch of how to make them yourself!

What you'll need:

  • egg carton
  • paper towel roll (the inside cardboard part)
  • two Popsicle sticks
  • 3 small Dixie cups
  • masking tape
  • foil
  • hot glue gun and glue sticks
  • newspaper
  • Mod Podge
  • paint
  • cardboard for teeth and wings (optional)

Structure: First glue the Dixie cups at the base of the horizontally placed paper towel roll. Then glue another into one of the openings. On the other end shape aluminum foil into a tail using the foil and secure with masking tape. Glue a Popsicle stick to each side of the structure. Then cut the very bottom sections that hold the eggs from the egg  carton, you will need three. They should be like tiny shallow cups. Then line them up along the top of the structure. Secure them to the structure using masking tape. Then cut strips of newspaper and cover the structure with one layer of newspaper secured with Mod Podge. Now you have the base structure for your dragon!

Decoration: Painting your dragon one solid color all over and letting it dry would be helpful for painting more details on after. Paint eyes, scales, flames, the sky's the limit! And if you cut out little cardboard shaped wings the sky won't even limit your dragon!
