How to make a woodland animal craft

STEP 1: Gather up your supplies

Before you begin, gather up all the supplies you'll need for this animal paper craft.  It makes it so much easier to sit down and create if you are organised!

STEP 2: Create the grass

In order to get started, select 3 shades of green coloured craft papers. Then, trace the grass patterns and carefully cut them out.

Next, select a piece of blue coloured craft paper or some other desired colour. Cut it to your desired height while keeping it to the same width as your grass.

Grab the longest grass paper and apply glue along all the straight edges - omitting glue from the top zig zag portion.

Then, apply the glue side directly at the bottom of the blue paper, making sure the edges of both papers are aligned as closely as possible.

Once you've done that, glue the medium sized grass piece of paper over the top of the grass you just glued down. Similarly, glue down the shortest piece of grass as well.

STEP 3: Create the woodland animals

Now it's time to make the animals for your woodland craft.  Let's start with the fox. Select the orange and cream coloured papers, trace the patterns, and then cut them out.

Glue all the template pieces for your fox together as shown below. Then, use a black sharpie to draw the eyes and nose of the fox.

Similarly, cut out the other animal patterns from coloured craft papers and glue the pieces to create each woodland animal.

STEP 4: Create the mushroom

Now it's time to make the mushroom! Trace and cut out the mushroom patterns.

Glue the small round pieces onto the oval shaped pattern. Then, glue the oval shaped pattern onto the top side of the mushroom.

STEP 5: Create the tree

Now for the final piece - the tree! Start by tracing and cutting out the tree pattern from green coloured craft papers and the trunk pattern from brown coloured craft paper. Glue both pieces together to create the tree pattern.

STEP 6: Complete the animal paper craft

To finish off your animal craft, glue the animals, tree, and mushroom in the grass pockets as shown below. You now have a completed woodland animal craft!
