Step 1: Starting with the Plastic Straws
Take three straws, two in color red and one in color purple. Hold all the three together with purple colored straw in the middle of the red colored straws. Cut a strip out of the tape and stick it at the top of the three clubbed straws to join them together. See the picture below for reference.
Step 2: Folding the Straws at the Top
Fold this taped area of these straws in the opposite direction of the taped side and join it with the straws beneath. Stick the rest of the tape on the same straws beneath to seal the two sides of the straws. See the picture below for reference.
Step 3: Cutting the Red Straws
Hold the two red straws together, leaving the purple straw behind. Cut both the red straws just below the folded straws as shown in the picture below. Do not cut the purple straw.
Step 4: Working on the Paper Cup
Take a pink paper cup and make a hole a little below the top of the sides of this cup. Then, on the same spot opposite this hole make another hole in the sides of the cup. See the picture below for reference.
Step 5: Making a Hole at the Bottom of the Cup
Make a similar hole in the middle of the base of this same cup. See the picture below for reference.
Step 6: Inserting the Purple Straw
Take the three straws and insert the longer purple straw in the hole you made earlier in the base of the cup as shown in the picture below.
Step 7: Inserting the Other Two Straws
Take the two red straws and insert on in the hole made on the top sides of the cup and the other in the hole lying on the opposite side of this hole you made earlier. You now have all the straws inserted in the cup holes. Stretch the red straws after inserting them and twist the expanded part to make both straws leaning towards each other as shown in the image in step eight.
Step 8: Making the Peppa Pig
Take a small pink sheet of paper and cut out the shape of the head of the peppa pig, the character with its nose resembling the muzzle of a gun and its two ears on top and a long face. Take a pink sketch pen and outline peripheries of the shape you just made . Make a mouth holding two little teeth and a smile at the bottom of the face and a big dot on the sheet. Finally, draw two circles on top next to each other. Draw a dot in the middle of each of these circles. This will serve as the eyes of the pig. Also draw a circle on the tip of the nose and make two prominent dots next to each other in the middle of this circle with the seam pink sketch. Paste the entire head shape on the three straws in the middle. See the picture below for reference.
Step 9: Making the Hands of the Pig
Take two small pink sheets of paper and cut two circles out of them. Now, taking the same pink sketch pen draw a heart in the middle of both the circles. Finally, paste these circles on each of the red straws. See the picture below for reference.
Happy Smiling Peppa Pig
Make both the red straws straightened to make the hands stand our. This completes the craft and we are left with the beautiful craft inspired by this popular, fun cartoon as shown in the picture below.
