Fall Squirrel Craft Step by Step Directions
Print the squirrel template. Cut out the pieces.
Trace the tail, body base, head, outer ear patterns and leg patterns on the medium shade of brown paper. The bottom side of the tail on dark brown paper and the belly pattern on the light brown paper. And the face pattern on the white paper. Also, trace the round blush shapes and inner ear patterns on the pink paper. Cut out the traced patterns.
Now, glue the bottom strip of the tail pattern along the bottom side of the main tail pattern. And glue the face cutout on the bottom side of the head cutout. As well, attach the inner ear patterns in the middle of the outer ear patterns.
Next, glue the ear patterns on the top side of the head pattern and attach the pink blush cutouts on both cheeks of the papercraft squirrel’s head.
Use a black sharpie to draw the eyes, nose and mouth of the squirrel.
Then, glue the leg cutouts near the open side of the paper bag.
Glue the body base cutout on the top side of the leg, covering the paper bag’s outer surface. Attach the tail pattern on either side of the paper bag.
Finally, adhere the head pattern of the squirrel on the flap of the paper bag.
