This adorable woodland animal craft featuring an owl, fox and hedgehog makes a cute recycled fall craft for kids!
The concept is the same, using just paper, cardboard, scissors and glue to make this cute recycled craft.
We used the same color combinations as the costumes; rainbow paper quills for the hedgehog, paper hearts for the owl and triangles for the fox.
Can you make these woodland animal creatures any size?
Yes of course you can! Our costumes are quite large as you can see, but this smaller, more manageable craft size fits in the palm of your hands.
Do you have a template for this fox, hedgehog, and owl craft?
No we don’t because there really isn’t any size requirements to follow. The cardboard animal shapes are easy to cut out as simple shapes. The size of your paper “fur” feathers or quills will depend on the size of your cardboard cut-outs so we opted here to leave it to your imagination!
However this is an easy craft to follow because we stuck to basic shapes like cones, hearts and triangles.
How to make this Cardboard Owl, Fox, Hedgehog Woodland Animal Craft – Materials:

Step 1. Cut out two round white circles for the eyes and two smaller black circles. Glue the black onto the white circles. Glue eyes to cardboard owl. Cut a small triangle for the nose. Glue that on as well.
Step 2. Cut out small hearts in orange, yellow and blue. Fold the hearts in half and glue to the body of the owl.
Step 3. Add one blue and one yellow feather on each side.

Step 3. Cut out a small eye, mouth (add a pink paper tongue), feet, ear and nose out of dark brown paper. Glue features on hedgehog face.
