Cute Mandarin Pig Craft (For Chinese New Year!)

Hosting a Chinese New Year event and looking for a super cute Chinese New Year Craft that also doubles as decor?  This is it!  Halos Mandarins recently reached out and challenged me to make a craft using their fruit.  Well, these adorable mandarin pigs definitely fit the bill.  These sweet pigs are a yummy and cute way to celebrate the Year of the Pig.

(Many thanks to Halos for sending me craft supplies and boxes of yummy mandarins!)

Let's Make Mandarin Pigs

Step 1:  Cut out two triangles (for ears) and one oval (for a snout) from pink felt.  Use a Sharpie marker to draw on a snout.

Step 2:  Cut out a piece of pink pipe cleaner.

Step 3:  Hot glue your ears, snout and 2 googly eyes onto your mandarins.  Then, curl your pink pipe cleaner around a pencil and push it into your peel for a curly tail.

Step 4:  Use a sharpie to add on details.
