Who doesn’t love getting a puppy for Christmas?! We already have two dogs, so there won’t be a tiny mutt under our tree, so we did decide to make one instead and out of a left over toilet paper roll no less.
I am so excited to share today’s craft with you. I am certain that your preschooler or toddler will have a blast making this cute toilet paper roll Christmas puppy dog craft!
Because we absolutely love using printables for most – if not all – of our crafts, we made one for this toilet paper roll craft too. Use our black and white version to color your own Christmas puppy however you wish or use the colored version and follow our simple step-by-step tutorial to make your own toilet paper roll puppy dog!
Toilet Paper Roll Christmas Dog Craft with FREE Templates
This toilet paper roll craft was so inexpensive to make! With only a few short supplies to gather, you will be on your way to bringing your puppy dog to life.
- White Cardstock Paper
- Recycled Toilet Paper Roll – we used one from our bathroom and wrapped it in brown paper. You can also buy them too if you wish or using this template in a Christmas party.
- Glue – we especially like Tacky Glue because it works on just about everything, but standard Elmer’s glue works fine for this craft.
- Christmas Dog Template (found at the bottom of the page)
After you’ve gathered your supplies and print out your favorite dog template, first thing to do is to cut all the shapes out. We found after we made the template the eyebrows didn’t fit on our rolls, so we left these out of our cuts.
Next, slap on some Tacky Glue and glue on his belly.
After that, glue on your toilet paper Christmas dog’s front paws.
After that, comes his nose, eyes and ears.
Next, turn him around and glue on his backside. It’s best if you use your fingers to curve the paper a little bit so it forms to the toilet paper roll a little easier. Then, slightly bend the paws backwards.
This is what your toilet paper puppy dog should looks like by this point. Now it is time to add some Christmas apparel.
Add a small amount of glue on both sides of his nose and affix his scarf. You’ll want to hold your paper down for about 30 seconds to ensure the scarf stays in place.
Finally add a small dot of glue for his Santa hat and he is all finished! He came out WAY cuter than I could have hoped for.
Let him be a Christmas decoration, a cute little DiY Christmas gifts from your littles to the grandparents or keep him on your work desk to liven up the workplace. However, he brightens your day, I hope you had a blast making him. I know we sure did!
