C is for Crab {Craft}

You’ll have to turn your computer sideways if you want to see the ‘C’ correctly, but I figured you all were smart enough to see the ‘C’, right?

I’m betting you all are going to think I have an obsession with googly eyes…and it’s true. I do. There’s just something about those wiggly things that make a craft so.much.cuter.

What You’ll Need:

  • Red foam sheet or construction paper
  • Scissors
  • Pen {to trace letter}
  • Googly eyes
  • Glue

How to make the ‘C’ Crab:

  1. Trace and cut an uppercase ‘C’ out of the foam sheet or construction paper. I used a foam sheet that was about 4″ x 5″ in size.
  2. Cut out two ‘claws’ for your crab. I didn’t use a pattern, just freehanded it.
  3. Cut out four long, skinny rectangles to use as ‘arms’ and eye extenders for the crab.
  4. Glue the legs and eye extenders onto the back of the letter ‘C’.
  5. Flip the crab over and add the eyes and the claws.
