How to make curly hair for a clown

What you need:

  • our printable template (optional) or hand-drawn clown face
  • white printing paper
  • Cardboard paper of any color
  • drag
  • glue

Step-by-step instructions

Prepare a cardboard of your choice. We use white cardstock as the background.

Print out the version your child likes – choose the black and white version if they like to color, or use the full-color clown face if they want to get started with their craft right away.

Have the children cut out the clown’s face.

Then, ask them to draw the clown’s face from one ear to the top of the head and then to the other ear with a pencil. This will make doing your hair easier.

Apply glue below the pencil line.

Glue colorful paper strips for the clown’s hair.

We used a variety of colors – orange, pink, green, blue and red, but children can use any other color they choose.

Starting with a strip on the outside, create a curl.

Then add a little glue to the end of the strip.

And glue the end to the cardboard so it curls up and stays in place.

Repeat these steps with all the paper strips to create a clown hairstyle.

Apply glue to the clown’s face.

The curly-haired clown is completed! We love how it turned out!
