Oh my! Yes, Dorothy is back with this Wizard of Oz cardboard roll craft. So easy and fun to make you’ll be tapping your heels together so you can get crafting. 🌈

Wizard of Oz Cardboard Roll craft

You will need:

  • 4 cardboard rolls
  • A selection of coloured paper
  • Scissors
  • Glue stick
  • Hole punch – not essential
  • Let’s make this adorable cowardly lion.
  • Wrap the cardboard tube all the way around with a sheet of yellow paper. Glue it in place.
  • You can copy this design for the lion’s mane. On orange paper. Draw out a rough shape with two rounded ears.
  • Cut the outline, then cut the face out of the middle.
  • Draw a face shape in yellow paper that will fit behind the mane, glue it in place.
  • Add a cute face. Punch 3 black circles with a hole punch, cut 1 larger white circle and 2 x pink circles.
  • Glue everything in place as pictured below.
  • Using a black pen add eyebrow and mouth details.
  • Stick the face piece to the cardboard roll.
  • Cut a little pink oval and stick this to the belly of your lion.
  • This cutie needs a tail. Cut a thin strip of orange paper and attach it to the back of the roll. Add a small pink flame shape to the top… ROAR!!
  • Let’s make the tin man and find him a heart 💙
  • Cut a piece of blue paper that covers the entire cardboard roll and stick it down.
  • Take a piece of aluminium foil 2/3 way up and glue that in place.
  • Cut out a small heart shape from red paper and attach it to the tin man’s chest.
  • Next I cut a shape that looked like a kitchen funnel and stick it at the top of the roll, upside down.
  • Using a hole punch, punch some blue buttons and glue them down his tin foil outfit.
  • Then punch some eyes and cheeks from black and pink paper.
  • Cut a long thin nose from purple card and glue all these pieces in place as pictured below.
  • Add a mouth and some brows…. He’s so happy to have a heart.
  • Let’s complete the set of Dorothy’s unlikely friends with the scatterbrained scarecrow.
  • Cover the entire cardboard roll with green paper and stick it down.
  • Then add a pink piece, all the way around about half the length of the roll.
  • Copy the shape pictured in blue paper to make a jacket and cut it out.
  • Add a yellow belt and buckle and wrap the jacket around the roll, securing it with glue.
  • Cut a hair shape to create a face and make a floppy hat with green paper.
  • Glue these together and stick a strip of yellow paper across the hat to make a band.
  • I added a little red flower detail to the hat.
  • Stamp out two black circle and a red circle to make the eyes and nose and add a little mouth.
  • Bless him – He does look like he hasn’t got a care in the world.
  • Who helped these guys find their courage, heart and brains – well Dorothy of course!
  • Cover one end of the cardboard roll in pink paper, wrap it around and stick it down.
  • Wrap the other end with blue paper, enough so that it covers the bottom 2/3 of the roll.
  • Add a little band of red around the bottom and stick in place.
  • I didn’t have any glitter card or red glitter so I painted some glitter glue over the red band.
  • Out of light blue paper cut a little apron shape and secure around the middle of the roll.
  • I cut this little hair shape with plaits, cut it out and added some little red bows.
  • I did this in black paper, but brown may work better if you have some available.
  • Stick her hair in place and add some little eyes and a mouth.
  • We’re off to see the wizard the wonderful wizard of Oz…..
  • Go crazy, build a yellow brick road or an Emerald city backdrop and send me your pics 👠🌈
