How to Make Doc Ock Arms with Working Claws using Cardboard

Hi cosplay lovers in this article we will see how to make doc ock arms or how to make dr octopus arms in a very easy way.

The best thing about our Doc Ock Tentacles is it has movable claws and is entirely made from cardboard.

In this post we will see how to build this at your home, I have taken a lot of time to build and fix this template.

But for my readers I am giving this doc ock claw template for free, so definitely you should try to make this interesting project.

To begin with, let me tell you a few things about the doctor octopus tentacles that we are doing.

This project is entirely made from cereal box cardboard that everybody can find in their homes.

Secondly, we are making just one arm out of 4, you can use the same steps for the other 3 too.

It took me around 10 hours to make this, as I built this from scratch including the template.

Materials Required to Make Doc Ock Arms

  • Cereal box cardboard
  • Paper glue and super glue
  • Hot glue
  • Ruler, pencil, protractor and compass
  • Ballpen for tracing
  • Silver color fabric paint or spray paint
  • Plastic tube and 2-meter black wire

Once you have all these supplies we can start to build out the project.

Grab a piece of cardboard and draw or trace the template on the cardboard.

Note: I have given a separate template for the claw and Arm.

Doc Ock Arm Template

This is the template that I made for Ock arms, it is made on A4 size sheet.

All the measurement values are in centimeters.

These are called vertebrae and we are building each of 12 pieces one by one.

In the template, I have given a number of pieces along with the piece names.

Draw or print the template, cut the pieces and paste it on cardboard.

Here as we are having inner circles we need to work on those first.

Cut those inner circles with hobby cutters as those give better quality cuts.

After working on inner circles we can cut outer circles.

Like the previous template, even this is also made on a sheet of A4 size paper.

Values are of exact measurement and can be printed on paper or be drawn.
