3 Different Ways On How To Make Forky from Toy Story 4
Toy Story 4 is out in theaters this weekend, and one thing every child is going to want a Forky! For the crafty parents, you’ll have this toy made in no time! But, if crafts are not your thing, or you don’t want to buy the crafts to make one, I’m sharing a few different ways you can create your very own toy from Toy Story 4.
But first, while at Pixar for the Toy Story 4 press junket, I learned a lot about this new toy. He went through several modules before the one you see on screen was selected. And yes, Forky is a boy. You will have to watch the movie to know why I know this info.
Here’s everything you need to make your own Forky
- Plastic Fork/Spork
- Pipe Cleaner (you can do the traditional red like in Toy Story 4 or pick your own color)
- Wooden popsicle sticks
- White modeling clay
- Additional pipe cleaner for eyebrows and mouth
- googly eyes (variety of sizes)
Directions on how to make Forky
- Create the base. Break apart a wooden popsicle stick. Using a small amount of white modeling clay, roll it into a ball and insert the two wooden popsicle sticks into it. You will have to play around with the shape of the base until you can place it on a flat surface and it stands straight.
- Insert the spork into the top of the base. Again, play around with the base of Forky until it can stand firmly on a flat surface.
- Create the face. For the face, you will use (2) googly eyes, a small amount of red modeling clay (or a red paint marker), as well as blue modeling clay (or blue paint marker) for the mouth.
- Take a very small strip of red modeling clay and place it at the top of the spork. *You will be making the mouth on the back of the spork (or bottom). Using glue, add the googly eyes, then add the mouth.
- Now add his or her arms using the pipe cleaner. Feel free to get creative and go with different colors. Taking a piece of pipe cleaner, wrap the pipe cleaner around the spork. Depending on how long your pipe cleaner is, you may want to cut it or wrap it more than once. Use the tip of the pipe cleaner and make little hands. (Forky has three on each side)
Feel free to add hair, paper clothes, and whatever else you feel your toy needs!
