Woodland spirits and the Green Man
spring summer autumn winter
Make your own Green Man or woodland spirit.
The woods are said to be home to nature spirits, elves and fairies. Create your own using leaves, mud and other natural items.
- Choose a spot for your sculpture – a tree trunk, large rock or the forest floor is best
- Gather fallen ferns, pine cones, twigs and leaves and make a face
- If there’s a big group of you, try making a life-sized figure
Leave your sculpture behind for other people to find. Maybe they’ll be inspired to make their own spirit too!
