Pipe Cleaner Monkey

Total Time Needed: 1 Hour

Turn pom-poms and pipe cleaners into silly-looking monkeys that you'll love to have hanging around.


  • bumpy pipe cleaner
  • regular pipe cleaner
  • pom-poms
  • hot glue or tacky glue
  • googly eyes


Pipe Cleaner Monkey - Step 1

1. To make each one, cut a length of bumpy pipe cleaner (make sure your piece has two bumps) and bend it in half to form the monkey's legs. Use hot glue or tacky glue to secure two 1-inch pom-poms together, sandwiching the legs and a 9-inch length of regular pipe cleaner (for the arms) between them.

2. Glue a third pom-pom in place for a head. Attach googly eyes, small pom-poms for ears, and a tiny pom-pom nose. Add glue to one end of a 6-inch length of regular pipe cleaner and stick it to the back of the monkey for a tail.

3. When the glue has dried, bend the arms and the tail into shape.
