It’s birdie time! Meet our exotic summer flock with spectacular plumages – pom pom and bead birdies to add a pop of colour to bedroom doors or playrooms. The twittering gals are so simple to make with cardboard circles or store bought pom pom makers.
Aren’t they darling!! :)
Pom Pom Bird Craft – all you need to make is some colourful wool, white and black wool for the eyes, beads and buttons.
For the beaks I just cut little pieces of felt and glued into the core of the pom poms, between the threads, with felt glue.
First wrap one side of your pom pom maker with two small strips of black – the pupils of the eyes. -
Cover over these black strips with white wool for the eyeballs, as shown. -
Then layer your coloured wool to completely cover the white, filling the pom pom maker. -
When the pom pom is finished you will end up with this – a fluffy pom pom. -
Trim around the pom pom to neaten the thread lengths and have a lovely uniform sphere. -
Tie a length of wool around the pom pom and thread on some beads for the legs, finished with buttons for the feet. - -
Time for the girls to have a chat!!
