What you'll need

  • Template for Kermit Autumn Leaf Garland
  • Scissors
  • Craft paper or card stock (white, green, pink, red, orange, and yellow)
  • Glue dots
  • Long length of raffia, thin ribbon, or colored string

How to make it

1. Print the first page of the template on green craft paper or cardstock (once for four Kermits or twice for eight Kermits). Print the second page on white craft paper or cardstock. Cut out all the frog heads and a pair of eyes for each one. Set the cut out heads and eyes aside for now.

2. Use the remaining template pieces as patterns for cutting a red paper mouth, a pink tongue, and three colored leaves for each Kermit.
