Shredded Paper Winter Animals

Posted by Marie on February 14, 2013

We're shredding paper to create fun animals or even hearts for Valentine's Day. These are super cute to craft, making for a perfect activity on a winter day.


  • shredded paper
  • white school or tacky glue
  • pencil
  • 1 sheet of cardstock paper
  • extra colored paper scraps
  • 2 googly eyes per creature

1. With your pencil, draw your image. I’m NOT an artist, so it’s a good thing it doesn’t matter as the paper will cover up my sad excuse for an animal!

2. Add glue to the entire inside of the animal’s body.

3. Grab a chunk of shredded paper and sprinkle it onto your glue. My paper shreds are 1-2 inches long, so I had to scrunch and bend some of them to stay within the outline. Press the paper shreds down, making sure they are in place and then shake off any extra paper that didn’t stick into the box.

4. Glue on your googly eyes and other embellishments.

Display your cute winter animal creations around your house!
