Shark-y accessories are fun no matter your age – and this one is really easy! I love crafts using all the little wooden shapes they sell at the craft store, and I think that using these little round discs gives this shark a Pac Man-ish look. There are a bunch of ways you could vary this project to make it as simple or as complex as you want. I turned mine into a pin, buy you could also glue on a bail and turn it into a necklace!
- Wood discs, about $1 and up
- Paint, on hand
- Ultra fine Sharpie, on hand or $1 and up
- Colored pencils or markers, on hand
- Dimensional Magic (optional), on hand or about $3
- Bead or googly eye, on hand
- Pin back, on hand or $1
- Glue, on hand
Total: about $1 and up
Start by painting a wooden disc with white paint. This will give you a good base for adding colors later on.
Use an ultra fine tip Sharpie to draw a wedge shape and line it with jagged, pointy teeth.
Use colored pencils or markers to color the area inside the mouth red, and color the rest grey, leaving the teeth white. Or give the teeth a little bit of red too!
Optionally, at this point you can add a layer of Dimensional Magic over the surface of the disc to give it a shiny finish and a more professional appearance. If you do this step, drop a small bead or a googly eye into place while the Dimensional Magic is still wet, then let dry completely; otherwise, glue the bead or googly eye into place.
Glue a pin onto the back side of the disc and once the glue dries, it is ready to wear!
