Fire Breathing Dragon Tube Craft
Go on an epic journey with this fire breathing dragon craft! Use a cardboard tube as the frame for this fiery guy. Dragons are a totally “in” thing right now and they are one mythical creature you don’t want to mess with, however you can download and print your very own friendly pet dragon right here in the shop at The Art Dream! Add your own orange, yellow and red tissue paper to create the illusion of a mighty fire being exhaled from this super cool craft!
Kids will love running around pretending their arm is the body of a fierce dragon while his hot fire brings doom to all of the bad guys. I especially love the horns on the top of his head they really bring this craft to life. If you like this project then check out some of my other printables in the shop! I’m also going to give you a super quick tutorial on how to put this craft together in this post! You’ll just need a few simple materials.
Step 1. Print out the dragon printable on white cardstock paper and cut out all of the pieces with scissors or a craft knife.
Step 2. Construct the horns, score all of the lines with a craft knife or you can use something like a popsicle stick or the corner of a credit card. Scoring helps tremendously when folding small flaps and executing fine details. Glue the flap to the corresponding side.
Step 3. Prepare your streamers however you wish, mine are tissue paper but you can use ribbon, yarn or even wrapping paper. Glue the streamers to the back of the dragon printable, be sure to use the side with the mouth.
Step 4. Wrap the dragon around a toilet tube and secure with glue or a stapler.
Step 5. Glue on the horns and bend the crown horns upward as well.
