Glue a wooden stick on the back side. We took a blue stick so that it merges as much as possible with the background of our craft. If there is no finished stick of the desired color, then it can be painted with gouache.

And on the front side we add plastic eyes to the octopus. When the octopus moves, the eyes will move funny in the direction of the slope.
