DIY – How to Make a Desk Troll


My daughter is so creative.  Last night she started experimenting with duck tape, and she came up with her own adorable creation.  Ladies and gentlemen, I present to all of you – the desk troll.


According to her, this very unique “stuffed animal” is supposed to sit on your desk and give you smiles all day long. Today, she is teaching us how to make one.

To do so, you will need:


–Duct Tape (Two assorted colors/patterns)
–1 Pipe cleaner
–Stuffing (She’s using tulle, because it’s what we had in the house)

Step 1

Grab a big handful of stuffing.


Step 2

Completely cover the stuffing with your choice of duct tape.



Step 3

Take a pipe cleaner and cut it into 4 pieces to be used for the arms and legs.


Step 4

Tape two pipe cleaner legs to the bottom of the body, and one pipe cleaner on each of the sides for the arms.


Step 5

Use your second colored tape to make eyes and a mouth.


And there you have it…your own adorable desk troll.  My daughter made a whole desk troll family.  Check it out!


My song of the day for my baby girl and her creativity is “Pure Imagination” from “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory,” because she is an innovator.  Love this kid and hope you love her “desk trolls” as much as I do!

I am a music teacher for children ages 6-weeks-old - 8th grade. I am also a camp songleader and a Jewish music specialist with and without my husband who is known as Shabbat Scott. We love singing with people of all ages all over Tucson. My "song of the day" idea originally started by playing music challenges on Facebook. I loved choosing songs, and my friends seemed to love reading and listening to my choices. I have decided to continue a daily blog (or as daily as I can manage) and tell you all some stories through some songs that have touched me either in wonderful ways or by annoying the heck out of me. Hope you all enjoy this blog! Happy singing!
