Looking to add a little cuteness to your books? Look no further than this adorable Peacock Bookmark. With a few simple steps, you will have this fun bookmark ready to mark your spot in your favorite book.
In our house, we love to read. Each night the kids get to pick a book to read with mom. Sometimes it is the same book night after night, but other times we are reading 5 books at a time. This causes a bookmark shortage in our house! That is why we love bookmark crafts so much!
We love our kangaroo bookmarks and our mouse bookmarks. But recently, they spotted a peacock in real life at the zoo and became obsessed. Naturally, we had to make a fun peacock bookmark craft to make their dreams come true!
These craft bookmarks are colorful and have an easy-to-follow template that you can create and customize your very own peacock bookmark in the afternoon.
Kids will love making these and want to make them for everyone they know! This craft is perfect for a fun afternoon together to make these bookmarks as little gifts to give. These cheerful bookmarks will surely bring a smile to anyone’s face, and your kids will love to see them come to life.

How to Make A Peacock Bookmark
- Select colored craft or construction paper for the peacock pattern. Trace and cut out the patterns. The template includes a tail feather base, eyed feather patterns, body base, wing, beak, and leg patterns.
- Glue the small teardrop cutouts onto the big teardrop cutouts to make the eye feather pattern.
- Glue the eye feather patterns onto the scalloped border side of the tail feather base.
- Finish gluing the eye feather patterns to the tail feather base.
- Glue the leg cutouts to the bottom side of the body base cutout. Glue the beak cutout onto the middle of the head part cutout.
- Glue one wing to one side of the body base cutout. Make sure the bottom part of the wing is free from glue.
- Glue the remaining wing to the other side of the body base cutout, making sure the bottom part of the wing is free from glue.
- Use a sharpie to draw the eyes of the peacock and trace the wing outlines.
- Glue the peacock body cutout to the tail feather base cutout.
- To use the bookmark, insert a sheet between the wing and the body of the peacock.
Tips and Tricks
- For some added sparkle, use glitter paper for the feathers of the peacock.
- For a more sturdy bookmark, use heavier paper such as cardstock.
- To help smaller kids cut out the shapes, trace dashes around the shapes to show them where to cut.
- Add some small googly eyes to the peacock for a bit of fun.
