Ant Holes Instructions

Step #1: Taking A Yellow Sheet Paper

Take A Plain Yellow Sheet Of Paper And A Pair Of Scissors- Creating a Realistic Ant in the Earth's Crannies

Pick a plain, yellow sheet of paper and a pair of scissors along with it. Cut the sheet into a circle. After you have the circle, cut a little segment out of it as shown in the image presented right above.

Step #2: Taking The Bigger Segment And Crumble It

Now, Take The Bigger Segment And Crumble It-How to Make a Realistic Ant in Holes in the Ground

After cutting off a small segment, grab the larger segment. Fold it into and then crumble it. Do not crumble it the extent that the sheet has lost all its qualities; just crush it enough to get the creases.

Step #3:  Tracing The Creases Using Dark Brown Wax Crayon

After You Are Done Crumbling, Pick Up And Dark Brown Wax Crayon And Trace The Creases- Crafting a Reasonable Ant in Underground Crevices

Now that you have the creases which give the absolute cracks in the ground effect, get a dark brown wax crayon. Hold the dark brown wax crayon very light-handedly and very loosely with just enough pressure that it only touches the sheet. Move the crayon, tracing the creases and a bit around.

Step #4: Highlighted The Cracks, Using Your Finger

Now After You Have Highlighted The Cracks, Smudge It Using Your Finger- Fabricating a Credible Ant in Ground Burrows

The next step after the Brow wax crayon is to slowly smudge it. Make sure you do not smudge it to the extent where the paper literally has a crack and tears off. Use your other hand to support the paper. Keep the pressure light while smudging; you do not need to make haste.

Step #5: Tearing Of A Part Of The Sheet

Now, Tear Of A Part Of The Sheet As In The Image Below- Constructing a Plausible Ant in Subterranean Holes

In this step, you need to tear off a piece of sheet. Take the help of the image. Tear it off slowly so you do not end up tearing off the entire sheet into halves.

Step #6: Pasting The Torn Segment
