Wood Patterns for Animal Crafts

Save

Making wood patterns for animal crafts can open a plethora of activities that you can do with your children. With animal crafts, you can create ornaments, toys or gifts for family and friends.

Pick Simple Designs

  • Since you will be making patterns out of wood and a not some flexible material like paper or cardboard, it's a good idea to keep your design as simple as you can manage. Some sources for inspiration may be stencils of animals or simple wooden puzzle designs for young children. Draw a few of these designs on paper and decide which one you could cut out of wood. Make a pattern of the animal out of cardboard and cut it out.

Transfer the Pattern to the Wood and Cut it Out

  • Lay the cardboard pattern on your wood and trace around it with a pencil. Use a jigsaw to cut around your traced lines. Smooth any roughness with sandpaper.

Use Your Animal Pattern

  • You can use your animal pattern in various ways: as a stamp, ornaments that can be hung on the Christmas tree or to decorate a room, or even as a painted sculpture.
