Start by cutting 8 strips of paper as wide as a finger. Then cut a circle out of orange paper. The diameter of the circle should be around half of the length of the paper strips.
Take all 8 strips of paper and align them. Fold them on the ends as shown in the illustrator. Glue the first strip of paper on the paper circle by making an arch.
Continue with the next strip of paper. The easiest way to go about this is to glue the second one at the right angle to the first one. Continue with all others until you get a nice dome.
Cut 8 tentacles out of orange paper. Glue them under the paper dome making them face one direction only.
Finally, Glue on eyes. We hope you enjoy this simple paper octopus craft idea by creating them!
