Toilet Paper Roll Frog Step by Step Instructions:
Step 1:Cut Out The Frog Pattern:
Download the toilet paper roll frog template from the download link above.
Use green shadec crafting papers to cut out the frog pattern according to the PDF toilet paper roll frog template. Cut out the frog pattern from the templates and place them over your colorful crafting papers and trace them using pencils.
Tips: In these crafts color combination is a big deal if you want your craft project to look appealing. A bright green color looks very good for a frog, but for the stomach area use a slightly dull green shade to make the details pop.
Step 2: Outline The Pattern:
Select two green shaded colorful marker pen or sharpies. One should be slightly darker than the other.
Use the dark shaded green marker pen to outline the frog’s legs and head. Then, use the light green colorful sharpie to outline the belly.
Step 3: Glue The Mouth, Cheeks and Draw Freckles:
First, glue the frog’s mouth on the lower part of the frog’s head.
Then, glue the two round cheeks on two sides of the frog’s mouth.
Once the glue has dried down completely, use the same dark green colored marker pen to draw the two nostrils and freckles.

Select two googly eyes according to the size of your paper frog’s eye sockets.
Glue the two googly eyes on the paper frog’s head.
Step 5: Glue the Belly:
While the googly eyes glue dried down, glue the light green shaded belly on the frog’s base.
To cut out the base first you need to measure the length and circumference of your toilet paper roll. For this ttoilet paper tube frog craft we are using a half of a toilet paper roll.
Step 6:Wrap the Toilet Paper Roll:
Apply glue on the back of the green craft paper base we cut out for the frog, and then carefully glue it around the toilet paper roll to cover the toilet paper roll. For this step you can use sticky tape as well.
