Woodland creatures are all the rage lately in the crafting world (and in pretty much every other world, come to think of it). Everywhere I look, I see easy crochet patterns centered around foxes or fun owl printable paper crafts. They’re all just so cute!
Oh, and have I mentioned that I’m obsessed with these woodland creatures and nature crafts? Because I am. They’re so cute and give off a very home-y vibe. Plus, foxes are one of my favorite animals of all time so every time I see an easy craft project that has to do with a fox, I pretty much stop whatever I’m doing and make it. Also, it takes pretty much all of my will-power to keep me from buying gorgeous woodland creature trinkets from Etsy. Seriously, though.
Another thing I like about woodland creatures and nature crafts is that they add a lot to the atmosphere of a room and remind me of how much I love being outside. I live in the suburbs of Chicago and while my area isn’t 100% urban with no nature areas anywhere, I can’t just walk out of my house and into a forest. I have to drive five minutes to the nearest forest preserve (which is located along a busy street) which is really unfortunate because I find forests and more rural areas to be so comforting and peaceful. More than that, seeing my favorite woodland animals in the forest always makes my days 100% better. By making woodland crafts (especially ones involving woodland creatures), I’m able to bring everything I love about nature and forests into my home.
I’m thinking that a lot of other people feel the same way that I do because of the sudden popularity nature crafts and woodland creature projects. If you’re like me (and a large majority of the crafting community) and you love these kinds of woodland crafts, below are a few of the woodland creatures I currently have on my to-make list.
