Cut the next yellow pipe cleaner into two sections, and shape them into the lion's legs.

Lion legs

Take another yellow pipe cleaner, cut it into two and attach one onto the body to form the lion's tail. Wrap the other yellow piece around a pencil to form the lion's head. Set the head to one side for now.

Add the tail

Cut one brown pipe cleaner into two pieces and wrap one around the yellow pipe cleaner to form the lion's tail. Wrap the other piece around the pencil to form the lion's mane.

Attach the legs and spine

Poke the remaining brown pipe cleaner through the middle of the lion's body, then add the mane, legs and the yellow head. Make sure you keep a bit of the brown spine poking through the head to from the nose.
