• Little Bird of Yarn

    Making alittle bird out of yarn. Using various colors of a yarn, and also mixing them very lovely little birds with various patterns turn out. The process is easy and fun and is perfect for co-creation with children.

    Materials and tools:

    1. yarn of 3-4 colors;
    2. cardboard;
    3. scissors;
    4. ruler;
    5. 2 beads (eyes);
    6. glue;
    7. wire;
    8. The needle and the black thread.

    Step 1

    We cut out 3 rectangles 4-5 cm wide from cardboard, and two 9 cm long rectangles and one 12 cm long. The size of the cardboard rectangles depends on the size of the birdies.

    Next, take the yarn and wind it on a cardboard rectangle (see photo). The width of the wound yarn is about 1 cm. It is not necessary to wind the yarn of the same color onto one rectangle, you can use the yarn of several colors - this way the bird's pattern is more interesting.


    • for a rectangle with a length of 12 cm, it is better to use dark colors of yarn - this will be the top of the bird;
    • for a single rectangle 9 cm long, light colors are the bottom of the bird;
    • for another rectangle with a length of 9 cm it’s better to mix a few colors of yarn - these are wings.

    Then firmly holding the yarn on one side of the rectangle, scissor the yarn on the other side.

    It turned out 3 bundles of yarn: top, bottom and wings of a bird. A bundle of yarn for the wings in the middle of a small piece of yarn and tie a knot.

    Step 2

    We connect the top and bottom of the bird.

    Take a bundle of dark yarn (the longest) and put a bundle of light yarn on it.

    Then the bundle of dark yarn is folded in half, we cut off a piece of yarn, tightly tighten the threads of dark yarn and tie a knot. We do the same with a bundle of light yarn.

    Step 3

    We join the wings.

    Take a bunch of yarn for the wings and place it between light and dark.

    Now we take a small piece of paper, about half of an A4 sheet, crush it into a little oval-shaped lump.

    This lump of paper is placed in the middle of the body, see photo Step 3.1.Wrapping a paper ball, we collect all the yarn in one bundle, we tie it with a piece of yarn of any color and we tie a knot.

    Use scissors to carefully thread the protruding yarn.

    Step 4

    Cut out a small square of orange cardboard and turn it into a bag - it will be a beak. Apply glue on the beak and glue it to the head.

    We make paws for the bird from the wire - everything is just see the photo. To attach the legs to the body, bend the wire from the other end and insert between the threads.

    We take 2 beads and sew them to the head of the bird with a needle and a black thread.

    All,a little bird of yarnis ready.
