This DIY farmhouse decor tutorial is featuring these cute yarn birds. I think they are so sweet and such a fun way to bring nature into your farmhouse decor.
How To Make A Yarn Bird
This DIY is super simple! Even my 5 year olds made these with me. I think these would make lovely Christmas ornaments. They would also look great in holiday wreaths or on wrapped presents.
There is no limit to the colors and uses these sweet little yarn birds can offer.
Supplies For DIY Farmhouse Decor
- 3 colors of yarn
- black beads, sequins or black clay for eyes
- orange paper or felt for beak
- Hot glue gun
- Yarn Bird PATTERN, here
- Cardboard for tracing the pattern onto
Next, lay the head color across the body color to make a cross. Then gather each side, pull tight and tie a piece of yarn around each color.
Place the wing color across the underside of where the head and body color meets.
Use a 1/4 of an average size piece of paper and crumple it into an egg shape. Place the egg shape in the bird, and wrap the back yarn over it and then the wing yarn and then the body yarn and gather the ends together.
Next, cut your yellow circle and then use scissor to cut a slit towards the center of the circle. Then roll the circle into a cone shape and hot glue onto the bird. Hot glue the eyes on too. Then trim the tail to the desired length.
And that’s all there is to it! Such a simple project but they turn out SO cute!
