Baby puffed rice snack container or Pringles container
2 sheets of teal felt
1 sheet of orange felt or orange craft foam
1 sheet of brown felt
2 white buttons
2 smaller black buttons
1 brown pipe cleaner: optional
Trace the lid of the snack container onto the teal felt. Cut out the circle. cut out a strip of felt to go around the edge of the lid as well. Glue the felt to the lid.
For the feet, tail, bill, and hat go to the Disney website and print out the template for their felt Perry the Platypus. Add 1/4 inch around all the pieces you cut out. You don't have to use the template, but I found it easier than trying to make my own.
Glue a piece of pipe cleaner to the bottoms of the brims of Perry's hat.
With the pipe cleaner on the inside glue the top and sides of the hat together, leaving the bottom open. You can adjust the hat to the width you want before gluing the bottom of the hat to the top of the lid.
Wrap your teal felt all the way around the body of the container and glue in place. You may need to trim the bottom of the felt if it is longer than the container.
For the feet, I chose to use orange craft foam. I cut them out larger than the template and glued them to the bottom of the container.
For the tail, glue both pieces of felt or foam together and draw criss-cross pattern in brown marker. Glue the tail to the bottom of the container.
Glue the tips of the bill together and glue the bill where you want Perry's face to be.
Finally, glue the smaller black buttons to the middle of the larger white buttons for the eyes and glue them about the bill.
