One of my favorite Halloween movies also happens to be one of the most unlikely Halloween family classics ever…! Almost everything about Edward Scissorhands is just a little….peculiar. The setting, the characters, the story, the hairstyles – and of course, the topiary art! But somehow it works SO WELL, and if you haven’t watched it with your kids yet, I highly recommend a showing. Also…young Johnny and Winona….*sigh*
This Edward Scissorhands inspired paper craft is a fun way for your littles to recreate the magic of Edward Scissorhands without the razorblades digits (yikes!) You can print out our free topiary patterns, then use cookie cutters or free-draw to create your own topiary art! Just add snow!
To make Edward Scissorhands Topiary Paper Art You’ll Need:
- Construction Paper, Copy Paper or Cardstock
- Our Free Printable Topiary Paper Art Patterns PDF (right-click and save to download)
- A Glue Stick
- Cookie Cutters for tracing shapes
Simply download and print our free foliage pattern printable, then free draw or trace fun objects on the foliage using cookie cutters.
Cut out your topiary shapes and glue them onto a background (you can use our full-color version, the black and white version you can color in, or make your own with construction paper).
Voila – creative art Edward himself would be proud of!
