Cute Christmas Birds...❥

Well y'all know I'm kinda fond of paper craft, 
and these sweet wee paper birds are so very easy to craft.

The kids will love to make them for decorating the mantel or bookshelf for sure!


You'll need:
sturdy paper or card to make two bird shapes.
A bird template.
Two paper clips for each birds feet.
A quick drying craft glue.


First you will need to print a bird template and cut it out.

I just used this free one that I found on Pinterest.
You can choose any bird shape you like.
I printed this in a 4x6 size.

Use the template to draw an outline on paper of your choice.
Use a double layer with the pattern facing each other.
Draw around the template and then cut the double papers.
Because these are for the Christmas decor, 
I have used Christmas themed paper.


Bend two paper clips per bird for the feet as shown.

 Glue the two side together using a big dollop of glue at the bottom of the birds tummy to hold the paper clips.


 Insert the paper clips and hold the two layers together for a minute while glue sets.
You will have to manipulate the feet a bit so the paper bird will stand on it's own.



Use for your Christmas decor... 

Note:
Save this paper craft idea for Spring and make pretty Spring paper birds.
