DIY Easy Baby Bird for Easter & Christmas craft projects


It's Easter time again, which means lots of chocolate, family time, happiness, the long weekend off work (I work every weekend so this is huge haha) and best of all it's Crafting time!!!

Here is a super easy baby bird you can make for the children's school Easter Parade hats or Spring Bonnets, your table setting decor or it even is so simple it becomes a kids craft project to get them off their devices and making and creating some adorable magic. It is also that versatile it becomes Christmas tree decorations or pretty decor for your festive fireplace mantel.


So grab your glue and lets get started on this 5 min craft!
Full DIY picture tutorial below


First up grab your supplies, which isn't much trust me!
SUPPLIES
- Craft Feathers
- Premade Pom Poms,
  I used glitter ones
- Aluminium foil
- Glue,
  Craft glue for kids or Hot Glue gun for adults


For one Bird you only need
2 small feathers
2 or 3 longer feathers
small square of aluminium foil
small amount of glue

I used all the same colours but different colour feathers mixed together would create some fun bright tropical baby birds



Step 1
Glue your longer feathers to the bottom of your larger Pom Pom


Step 2
Glue on the small Pom Pom to make the head




Step 3
On each side of Pom Pom, glue on smaller feathers.
You can trim with scissors once glue is dry if they look too full or big


Step 4
Make your Beak

- Cut a small square of foil (approx the same size as your large pompom)
- Fold into a triangle and keep folding until it looks like the size you want for the beak
- Bend the triangle to create a beak shape
- Glue to head of bird/small pom pom


And you are done! You can glue some sequins for the eyes but I wanted a clean simple look for another craft project I will post this week. Okay it's a beautiful Easter Parade Hat I can not wait to share with you all, I am so excited about it, I can't even keep it secret, i just want to squeal haha


Happy Crafting &  I would love to see your baby bird creations,
