Difficulty Level[]


Supplies Needed[]


  • Construction Paper: yellow, green, red, and brown
  • Black marker
  • White string
  • White craft glue
  • Scissors


  1. Cut a pear shape from yellow construction paper.
  2. Use a pencil to draw a circle in the center just below the neck area of the guitar. Color the circle with a black marker.
  3. Cut a circular ring from red construction paper, larger than the circle you drew on the guitar. This circle will outline the circle on the guitar. Glue the ring around the guitar center circle.
  4. Cut 8 triangles from green construction paper. Glue around the red circle in a sun type pattern.
  5. Cut the guitar handle from brown construction paper. Glue the handle to the guitar, starting at the top of the black circle.
  6. Cut two strips from brown construction paper as the string holders for the bottom of the guitar. Glue one of them toward the bottom of the guitar, halfway between the bottom green triangle and the bottom of the guitar.
  7. Cut four long strips of white string. They need to be long enough to stretch from the top of the guitar handle down to the bottom brown strip. Glue all four in place and let them dry completely before moving on to the net step.
  8. Once the strings have dried, trim the ends that are overlapping off.
  9. Cut an oblong piece of construction paper to cover the edges of the string at the top of the handle and glue in place.
  10. Glue the second brown strip on top of the first brown strip to cover the string ends.
  11. Strum!
