How to Make

  1. Take a sheet of yellow card and stick a piece of double sided tape along one side.
  2. Place the cardboard tube onto the double sided tape and roll it up the card until it is covered. Then stick the other end of the card down with more tape.
  3. Trim the ends of the card so they are about an inch longer than the tube, then fold them inside the ends of the tube.
  4. Cut out the pineapple leaf shape out of a sheet of green card, then stick it into the front part of the tube.
  5. Use an orange pen to draw the pineapple pattern onto the yellow card. Then use a black pen to draw the mouth.
  6. Stick two wiggle eyes to the front of the pot just above the mouth.
