What You’ll Need:

How to Make It:

  1. Cut mountain and rock shapes out of dark green and brown vinyl. Apply 1-2 of them to each side of the tackle box.
  2. Cut 4 strips of grass out of light green vinyl, one for each side of the box. Apply them over the mountain and rock shapes.
  3. Cut out the pieces of the Porg by color. You’ll need the white and grey body shapes, orange and grey head shape, orange feet, and black eyes and face details.
  4. To apply the Porg pieces, apply the white to the grey, then apply the orange head detail over the white. Next add in the face details. Once you have assembled your Porg, you can peel the backing off of the largest piece and apply the Porg to your tackle box.
  5. Apply the Porg’s feet once the body is in place on the tackle box.

What You’ll Need:

After stitching two sides, slide the foam into the fabric pocket and then finish stitching the other two sides. Make sure to leave extra twine on two corners to tie the sit-upon around your child’s waist.
  3. Trace wave and paddle shapes onto the fabric. Paint the wave blue, and the paddle brown. Once dry, add any detail.
  4. Make 4 tassels out of raffia.
  5. Cut 8 leaves out of green craft foam.
  6. Hot glue 1 tassel and 2 leaves to each corner of the cushion.
  7. Hot glue 3 shells in an arch shape around each leafy corner.
  8. Once all of the glue is dry, head outside and explore!
