In this easy tutorial for this Cute Paper Octopus summer crafts, you will learn how to craft an octopus. We have found it very hard to draw octopuses on paper, but with this tutorial, you can learn how to make an octopus with paper in a super simple way. Summer is a hot season and there is no reason to resent it, especially the long delightful vacations and the feeling of joy after a cold shower. This paper octopus is going to be booming.

Anyways, did you know that octopuses have nine brains? One of the brains is the central brain and the other eight arms have their separate brains to work independently. They have blue blood and three hearts! They also squirt out ink when they sense danger!

Cute Paper Octopus

The octopus is the ninth most intelligent sea creature in the world! It is mostly poisonous and the venom of one can kill ten well-grown men which is quite surprising. Isn’t it?

Are you ready to try this cute craft? Let’s begin!

What You Need:

  • Pink colored sheet (or you can simply choose a color you like)
  • The plain white sheet (white is optional. You can choose some other color as well)
  • Black marker
  • Scissors
  • Glue stick
  • Pencil

Step 1:

Firstly cut the pink paper into a rectangle, the size is your choice and depends on how tall or fat you want to make your octopus. Also, draw a line horizontally above more than half of the paper. Now draw seven lines emerging from the horizontal line you just drew.

Also, stick the two sides together.
