Animal headbands are a fun leaf craft for kids that are simple to make and they look adorable! Gather some leaves and create your own little critters with our free printable designs!

I think fall crafts are my favorite! I absolutely love this time of year, and when the colors change and the cooler temperatures start rolling in, it’s both beautiful, fun, and kind of inspiring! These animal headbands are a fun way to use the fallen leaves you collected on a nature walk. Simply print out our headband template and stick 2 coordinating leaves in place to be their “ears”. It doesn’t get any easier (or more adorable!) than that!

Let’s grab a few supplies and get crafting!
