Materials Needed for a Christmas Llama

Here’s what you need to make your holiday llama. These craft supplies are simple to find at any craft store or supercenter. I like to keep construction paper and pom poms on hand at all times so we are always ready for a craft. If you craft as much as me, you probably already have some of these items! Here’s what you need:

  • FREE llama template
  • white, light pink, kraft paper, green, and red construction paper or cardstock
  • white pom pom
  • cotton ball
  • Green medium size pom poms
  • glitter green pipe cleaner
  • paint pen (bright pink or light pink)
  • black Sharpie

You will also need some liquid glue or a gluestick to stick everything together. Hot glue is also an option, but be mindful of little fingers.

Feel free to use different colors for the hat and ear muffs. I stuck to Christmas colors, but a variety of colors would look amazing if you are doing this activity with a classroom of kids or a larger group! Let them pick their own colors to decorate their festive llamas before taking them home.

Piecing this cute llama together is simple; just follow these step-by-step instructions. The Christmas llama images are easy to cut out and glue together, so kids of all ages can participate. Feel free to customize the llama as much as you would like! Here’s what you do:

  1. Start by cutting out your FREE llama template pieces. Glue them in place.
  2. Add a Santa hat or ear muffs (or both) to the llama’s head.
  3. Draw on your mouth using a Sharpie. The mouth is made with Kraft paper.
  4. Add eyes and eyelashes if you wish.
  5. Give your llama a green or red scarf.
  6. Finish by adding rosy pink cheeks with your paint pen.

Turn these cute crafts into Christmas gifts or a neat holiday card for friends. Attach them to wrapping paper on gifts you are giving to loved ones.
