The Steps for How to Make the Easy Christmas Crafts: Paper Circles Teddy Bear:

Print the Paper Circles Teddy Bear pattern.

Cut around all of the pattern shapes.

The two largest circles - one for the head and one for the body - will be from the darker construction paper.

For the pairs of smaller circles, the larger ones will be the same color as the body and head with the smaller circles being the contrasting lighter color.

Separate the circles based on the color of paper to be used.

Paper Circles Teddy Bear step 1 cut around pattern pieces

Using the small rounded triangle shape, cut the nose shape out of black construction paper.

Being small, the nose poses a challenge to cut around the small pattern. As an option, use the pattern and the black pen to draw the nose later.

Paper Circles Teddy Bear step 2 cut out the nose

From the brown construction paper, cut two each of the three small circles.

Cut one each of the head and body circles. 

Paper Circles Teddy Bear step 3 cut out the darker circles

From the cream construction paper, cut two each of the smaller circles for the contrast.

Glue the large body circle to the teddy bear shape.

Using glue, add the head circle to the teddy bear.

Paper Circles Teddy Bear step 8 glue dark arm circles

Glue the third set of brown circles over the pattern's legs.

Paper Circles Teddy Bear step 9 glue dark leg circles

Position the cream colored circles near the ears, arms and legs.

For the ears, glue the cream circles with its edge touching the edge of the brown circle (refer to the pattern for positioning).

For the arms and legs, center the cream circles over the brown circles and glue.

Paper Circles Teddy Bear step 10 glue light circles

Glue the nose to the teddy bear - not at the edge as shown in the picture - but positioned as shown on the pattern.

Or, draw the nose based on the pattern.

Paper Circles Teddy Bear step 11 add nose

Using a black pen, draw the mouth and eyes.

Paper Circles Teddy Bear step 12 draw eyes and mouth

For the bow tie, I make a simple bow in the end of the ribbon and work to get the size right before I cut the ribbon.

Glue the bow to the teddy bear where the head circle overlaps the body circle. 

Paper Circles Teddy Bear step 13 add bow tie

Cut a length of ribbon 8 to 10 inches long to form the hanging loop.

Paper Circles Teddy Bear step 14 cut ribbon for hanger

Glue the ends of the ribbon to the back of the teddy bear's head.

Paper Circles Teddy Bear step 15 glue ribbon hanger

The Paper Circles Teddy Bear is finished except the glue needs to dry.

Paper Circles Teddy Bear step 16 let glue dry

Hang the fun little teddy bear on a Christmas tree, a drawer pull or anywhere he can add smiles to someone's day.
