How to Make Rainforest Decorations

Updated April 17, 2017

A rainforest is one of the most mysterious and amazing places on earth. The Amazon River Basin contains the largest rainforest in the world, covering over 3 million square miles. The Amazon is actually home to one in every ten species known to man on earth. Rainforest decorations can easily be made with some paper and scissors. Hang the decorations on the wall, paste on greeting cards, or even hang them on the fridge. Bring the enchantment of the rainforest into your house with a few simple decorations.

On the orange paper, draw an oval for the head and a jelly bean shape for the body. Draw a curved line on the back for the tail.

Separate the front and back of the jelly bean shape into legs. Add circles on top of the head to form the ears.

Create the cheeks, nose and eyes out of circles. Draw lines across the bottom of the legs to make the paws and cut them out.

Trace the drawing with a black pen, marker or crayon. Erase the pencil lines when the ink is dry.

Colour in the stripes with black, and the paws and cheeks with white.

Draw three football shapes on the green paper to make leaves. Add small triangles around the edge of the shape to make serrated edges. Place a line in the middle of each for the vein of the leaf.

Outline the leaf shape with the black marker and erase the pencil lines when the ink is dry.

Cut out the leaves and set aside. On the brown paper, draw a long, curved triangle shape for the trunk of the tree and two circles for coconuts.

Outline the trunk and coconuts with marker or pen, and erase the pencil when it is dry.

Glue or tape the leaves on the top of the trunk. Attach the coconuts on the top of the leaves.
