I love simple papercrafts where all you need are the basics. Sometimes you don’t need to get fancy with expensive crafting materials to make something beautiful.

This woodland animal wreath has three different animals you can choose from to include in the centre. A fox, a squirrel and a bunny (I haven’t included a picture of the bunny version but the shape is there).

Lets get started…

How to make a woodland animal paper wreath

You will need

How to:

Trace the wreath base on a cardstock paper or cardboard and trace the leaves on green construction paper. Cut out the traced wreath base and leaves.

Take each leaf cutout and fold them into half lengthwise to create a crease line.

Take the leaves and glue them on the paper wreath base however you want. I’m putting the leaves on one side.

Trace an animal pattern onto craft paper and cut it out. This example is the fox, but choose from others on the template.

Use a sharpie or gel pen to draw the face details of the paper animal. Also, cut out the other patterns (mushroom and tree) and join the parts to complete each item.
