How to make a Felt Narwhal

Share Wildflower Ramblings!

Check out our adorable N is for Narwhal ABC Felt Animal :)  My son became obsessed with Narwhals for a time, so this one was perfect! You can find many more templates and how-to posts in our series: ABC Felt Animals.  My children love their felt animals and this project has really helped to reinforce beginning sounds, so we are are moving slowly but surely!

Though they take some time and effort, the felt animals have been well worth it.  They develop phonemic awareness and help children learn and create and imagine.  I hope you enjoy learning about how to make a felt mouse!

All you need to make a Felt Narwhal is:

  • felt: dark gray, white, plack (or you can use paper!)
  • cotton balls
  • hot glue gun (or Elmer’s if you’re just using colored paper)
  • amazing Fiskar scissors (if you’re going to work with felt at all, you have to check these scissors out!)

** This craft uses a hot glue gun — please keep out of the reach of children — these are for adult use only!!**

First, cut out your paper template.  I cut out the body, fin, and tusk (which is actually the male narwhal’s tooth!)  I made two bodies, two fins, and a white piece for twisting the tusk.

I began twisting a tusk and gluing as I went.

I glued on the fins to the bodies on each side, and glued in the tusk, as well as cotton balls.

Carefully glued the bodies together little by little.

My son was so, so excited!

My daughter loves him!

I don’t have a template and coloring page but the link below will work just fine to make your own felt narwhal!
