Introduction: Halloween Paper Snakes

This is one of my favorite Halloween crafts and we filled our wall with them this year.

Step 1: Gather Your Materials:

12”x12” scrap booking card stock paper with patterns-choose a variety!

Adhesive jewel eyes (or markers)

Soft surface such as a folded newspaper, a magazine or fun foam

Blunt pencil, ballpoint pen or a knitting needle


Step 2: Draw

Place the card stock pattern side down on a padded surface.

Use blunt pencil to draw a curvy line that winds and curves itself starting at the top corner of the paper to the opposite corner of the paper.

On one end of the line draw a triangle shaped head.

Step 3: Cut

Trim the paper ½” on both sides of the line, tapering the cut at the bottom to make the tail.

Step 4: And Pinch

Flip the strip over and pinch along the scored line and the snake will start to curve in on its self.

Add eyes.

Attach them to the wall with removable adhesive (I like 3M removable foam squares).
