Step 1: Gather Materials

Color clay of choice
White clay
Black clay
Dotting tool (I used a bobby pin)

Step 2: Make Head

Make an weird oval type shape this will be the head

Step 3: Make Tentacles

Make 8 curled snake shaped things but make sure that two of them are wrapped around a stick like in the picture

Step 4: Make Eyes

For this you just make a ball and put a hole in it with a dotting tool then put a black dot in the center (you could do it the other way around like I did) and repeat for the next eye then put it on the head

Step 5: Make Body

Add some clay to the bottom

Step 6: Add Tentacles

Connect at the bottom of head

Step 7: Put It in the Oven

Put it In the Oven For The Time Suggested On Package you are done with your octopus

Step 8: Tip:

Put wire in the tentacles to make them stronger and if you don't be very careful because they are very fragile
