Last year I made a Wocket in my Pocket, two years ago I made a Yottle in my Bottle, and this year I’m showing you how to make a Zamp in my Lamp. I love the fun characters that Dr. Seuss made for his book “There’s a Wocket in my Pocket”, and I’m having a blast turning them into fun little characters in my own life. Maybe after a couple more years, I’ll have a house filled with Dr. Seuss’s crazy creatures, just like the boy in the book!
I’m doing this project as part of Craft Lightning week. This week, my co-host Angie from The Country Chic Cottage, and our Guest Host, Sarah from Mom Endeavors, are sharing a fun and fast Seuss craft each day… and having some of our crafty friends join in! Be sure to scroll down to the bottom of this post for more fun and fast Seuss inspired crafts!
To make a Zamp in my Lamp, you’ll need:
Five Tan/Orange pipe cleaners
One Pink Pipe Cleaner
Start by folding two pipe cleaners in half, and link them together.
Twist the two pipe cleaners together.
Fold each of the ends in half, and twist, to create the arms and legs.
Wrap the end of a pipe cleaner around your finger to form the head.
Wrap the tail around and around, like a ball of yarn.
Attach the head. Wrap the two remaining pipe cleaners around the middle to thicken up the body.
Cut 1/3 off the pink pipe cleaner, and insert it into the top of the head.
Glue on the eyes, then hang your Zamp from the nearest lamp! I love having a Zamp in my Lamp!
