Let’s make a Werewolf (/Wolf)!

Create an Arty Background

Step 1 – Optional: Using a paintbrush, fingers or items to print with (bubble wrap, paper rolls, lego bricks etc), decorate the backing piece of card stock.

Depending on the craft objectives, Arty Crafty Kids can make a spooky twilight scene for their Halloween werewolf OR present their wolf on a winter backdrop (take a look at our Winter Polar Bear Craft for ideas).

Alternatively, abandon the theme all together and simply experiment with printing materials to make a fun pattern.

Cut out and Trace the Wolf Elements

Step 2: While the backdrops are drying, the Arty Crafty Kids are presented with a choice…

They can either colour in the template OR cut out the elements and trace the individual shapes onto coloured paper.

The first option might be easier for younger children. Older children may also enjoy using paint or a colouring medium to create furry textures for their wolves.

In this example, we’ve used our template on coloured paper.

Arty Crafty Kids | Secure the wolf elements to the backdrop.

Start with the Big Round Circle

Step 3: Glue the large circle onto the arty backdrop, leaving enough space above the circle for ears and below the 3D mouth.

Arty Crafty Kids | Assemble the eyes of the wolf.

Assemble the Eyes

Step 4: If the eyes have been separated as we have above, assemble the eyes.

The whites of the eye could also be coloured in or left white.

Arty Crafty Kids | Attach the mouth of the wolf.

Assemble the Mouth

Step 5: Cut around the mouth and teeth provided on the template and glue to the coloured paper.

Position the nose just above the toothy smile.

Step 6: Create a small fold to both narrow ends of the oval.

Step 7: Apply a generous amount of the glue to both folds.

Line one fold up with the bottom of the circle (as shown above) and secure.

Step 8: Fold the oval to the other side, again lining the fold with the bottom of the circle and secure.

The mouth should be lifted, creating a cool 3D effect.

Create another ring.

Step 11: Glue the rings to the werewolf’s head and attach the ears on top of the rings.

The paper rings will lift the ears from the page, adding an extra dimension to the craft.
