    Cut out different shapes from the felt sheets to decorate your cardboard bird. Attach the felt shapes and stick to your bird using PVA glue.

    Cut a semi-circle shape from adhesive glitter foam and use this to attach a few feathers to your cardboard bird to create wings.

  • Step 3

    Place a wiggle eye on your bird’s face. Attach with glue.

  • Step 4

    Punch a hole in the top of your cardboard bird.

  • Step 5

    Cut a long length of twine. Thread the twine through the hole in your bird and tie to secure. You now have a hanger for your bird.
