Prickly Pets Animal Craft

The prickly pets animal craft uses the burrs from burdock plants to make adorable animal shapes.

Those big, prickly burrs can be a pain in the neck -- or the foot. Burrs can also be a big pain in the paw for your four-footed friends. So, pick them up off the ground and use them for this great craft.

What You'll Need:

  • Dried burrs from burdock plants
  • Craft glue
  • Twigs
  • Maple wings (optional)
  • Paint

How to make the prickly pets animal craft:

Glue several burrs together to make animal shapes. Add tiny twigs for legs, maple wings (they carry the seeds of maple trees) for wings, and other natural decorations to finish them off. You can use tiny dabs of paint to give them eyes.

Make a whole zoo of burr babies, and keep them up on a shelf, where they won't bite any toes.

Your collection of animals doesn't stop with burr pets. Check out the rockin' rock pets craft in the next section for another great animal craft idea.
