What You'll Need
How We Did It
Cut 2 pieces of yellow felt the same shape, but slightly smaller than the wings and glue them in place. These will make up the underside of the bird's wings. Repeat with the tail.
Tuck the tail--yellow side down--into the back end of the sock and glue it in place. Use a clothespin to hold the sock closed around the tail until the glue dries.
I needed something for the legs, so I scrounged through my random bag of "stuff" I have saved and found these pencil wraps. I cut one in half and used the two pieces as the legs for our bird. You can use anything you like here--pipe cleaners, straws, rolled-up paper or whatever you have laying around the house! Glue the legs onto the feet. Once dry, glue the legs onto the bird.
For the nose--cut a rounded triangle from the black sticky back felt, bend in half and glue to the face. I also added a smaller crest in front of the yellow crest using white felt and attached it with glue.
