-I’m going to show you to make this adorable
bird puppet from a paper bag and upcycle gift pack
supplies. For this craft, you’ll need a paper lunch
bag, gift wrap, or Kraft paper, tissue paper, tape,
Kraft glue, 2 bottle caps, a bow, ribbon bunches and scissors.
The first step is to lay your bag flat on the bottom.
Fold the 2 corners of the flat up and secure with glue. Cut each triangle from orange paper,
then glue and paste for the bird’s beak. Then, with
dome shape piece of pattern paper, start fringing the
edges and glue that into place at the top of the flap. To
make the bird’s eyes, crumple up 2 pieces of small
tissue paper and glue them in place into plastic bottle
caps and then glue in place on the bird’s head.
Attach 2 more 2 tissue paper balls to the beak
to create the bird’s nostrils. Cut 6 pieces of ribbon
about 1 to 2 inches long and glue in place to create the bird’s belly. To finish off
our bird, we have 2 bunches of store bought ribbon.
You can take the either side of the bag to create
the bird’s wings, a little gift bow to go to the
top of the bird’s head. There’s head feather and from
Kraft paper, we just cut this little worm, do a
little accordion folding and secure with tape under the bird’s
beak. Today, we make the bird, but you can follow
the same steps at home to make us proud. The best part about this craft is you can turn
to any material for inspiration.
