Step By Step Instruction to make Paper plate Farm Craft

Step 1: Create the Base

To start, roughly sketch the baselines on the paper plate, creating 5 to 6 partitions to colour different areas of the farm.

Utilize shades of blue to paint the pond, various hues of green for the fields and animal shed, and a warm brown for the central barn area – let your creativity flow as you craft your own unique version of a farm!

Step 2: Creating the Fence

Allow the painted plate to dry while we work on crafting a rustic straw fence. Cut the straw into small 2-inch pieces using a cutter and cutting mat, then use a hot glue gun to attach them vertically, forming a fence for the animal shed.

Step 3: Creating Barn and Hay bales

Now, the barn and some charming hay bales. Take a rectangular piece of red corrugated paper, approximately 16cm x 8cm, and fold it into a rectangle, securing the ends with glue.

Next, cut another piece of black corrugated paper to serve as the roof, placing it over the red base. Finally, make three cuts to fashion an openable barn door.

For the hay bales, roll and glue a thin strip of yellow corrugated paper to create 4 to 5 pieces.

You can add further details on the paper plate like grass patterns drawn with a pencil or attach strips of green sheets.
