Buildable Bird
Total Time 1 hour Ages all-ages

Let your holiday greetings take wing! These two-piece avian ornaments can be tucked inside cards and assembled in seconds by the recipient. (You're allowed to make one or two for yourself too.)

What you'll need

  • Stiff felt (white for dove, red for cardinal)
  • Tacky glue
  • Silver sequins
  • Black seed beads
  • Large needle
  • Embroidery floss

How to make it

  1. Buildable Bird - Step 1

    Using our downloadable template as a guide, cut out the wings and body of the bird from stiff felt. For each eye, use tacky glue to add a silver sequin and a black seed bead.

  2. Buildable Bird Step

    Use a large needle and embroidery floss to make a hanging loop right above the slot for the wings. Place the two pieces inside a card with instructions to slide the pieces together at the slots.
