Leaf Ostrich Instructions
Step #1: Cutting The Leaf Stem
Begin this craft by taking a white circular paper sheet as the base for the craft and a red fall leaf. Using scissors, cut off the stem of the red fall leaf as shown in the image.
Step #2: Pasting The Red Leaf
Using glue, paste the red fall leaf on the base in the center horizontally. This will be the body of the ostrich.
Step #3: Making The Ostrich’s Neck And Face
Using a pink sketch pen, make the long, thin, and wavy neck of the ostrich on the right side of the body and make the horizontally curved face at the top end of it. See the image for reference.
Step #4: Making Facial Features And Legs Of the Ostrich
Using scissors, cut out a tiny crown from the yellow fall leaf and paste it above the head of the ostrich to make its crown. Paste a googly eye over the end of the face using glue to add an eye to the ostrich. Also, using the black pen, make the curved little beak of the ostrich to the face of it. Using a black sketch pen make the thick legs of the ostrich, one standing straight and the left one bent towards the right one. See the image for reference.
Step #5: Making Bushes Beneath The Ostrich
Grab orange fall leaves and paste them on the bottom of the base but make sure to paste them in a way that only the top half of them is over the base and they are slightly over one another using glue. These will represent the bushes beneath the ostrich.
Step #6: Completing Making The Bushes
Completely cover the bottom region of the base with the leaf bushes as shown in the image.
Step #7: Adding A Sun
Using scissors, cut out a circular sun from the yellow leaf and paste it over the left top of the base using glue to add sun to your craftwork. Also, using the scissors cut off the extra leaf bushes coming out of the base.
Step #8: Drawing Sun Rays
Using the pink sketch pen, make the small lined sun rays coming from the sun around it.
