colorful coral snake is found in the southern desert region of the
United States. It's small but very poisonous. Make his brightly
colored rings with coiled strips of foam.
You will need:
- Adhesive foam sheets - Black,
Orange and Yellow
- 8mm Black bead
- 2 Red chenille stems
- 2 Wiggle eyes - 8 mm
- Sequin pins
- Optional: Plain foam sheets
a 1" hook in one end of two chenille stems. Interlock
hooks then twist securely. Add a black bead to one end of
chenille stem. Wrap a 1" hook around bead, then twist
hook onto chenille stem. Trim chenille from stem around
bead. Bend a 1" fork tongue at the other end of stems.
Twist each fork together.
- Cut adhesive foam
strips as shown. Remove paper backing from shortest black
foam strip. Beginning at bead end, wrap foam strip around
chenille stem. Wrap the shortest yellow strip next to the
black coil. Wrap the shortest orange strip next to the yellow
coil. Push coils together toward bead end. Continue adding
foam strips, graduating from shortest to longest strips.
Insert a sequin pin at the end of each coil to hold in place.
- Cut two head shapes
with neck tab. Cut and remove paper backing on each tab
on back of head only. Stick tabs and head back together,
on each side of chenille stem. Wrap the 6" orange neck
strip around the chenille stem, covering tabs.

yellow foam strip. Stick strip across top of the head. Glue
