Paper Squirrel Window Decoration

Squirrels have a lot to do now before the winter sets in. Their supply of nuts and, pine cones and seeds needs to be well tucked in safety so they can find them when the snow is high. This little guy feels safe hanging in the window of a child’s bedroom, where he can watch his friends do their work outdoors.

Squirrel Template






1. Print out the pattern and create a permanent template by following the steps in the tutorial “How to Make Patterns and Permanent Templates” and then transfer the markings onto black construction paper using a white pencil. Place a second same sized sheet of construction paper underneath the first one and paper clip them together so that they stay together when cutting through both layers.
2. Carefully cut through both layers of paper either using scissors or a craft knife.
3. Once both layers are cut, glue the brown transparent paper on the side of paper with the white markings. The tail is darker. To do this, glue a second layer of transparent paper over the first. Now take the second black cut out and glue it exactly over the first, concealing the transparent paper within.
