Foil and Batting Little Birdie Sculpture - finished bird with beak, eyes, paint, and wings in placeAfter watching a few Youtube videos and using household items I had on hand, I made a little bird sculpture which could be used for garden or home crafting projects.

Total Time: 1 hour

Yield: 1

Supplies:

  • aluminum foil
  • batting or cotton
  • acrylic paint
  • square paper clip
  • floral stems
  • black beads for eyes
  • two feathers
  • paint brush
  • glue

Steps:

  1. Crumple a piece of aluminum foil, estimating the size of bird you want to make. (This is just a guess.) Shape into a bird shape with head, body, and upturned end of bird's body.

  3. Wrap quilt batting around the foil sculpture and glue as you go. This is the step where I painted dabs of paint to give the bird some color (unless you want a white bird.)

  5. Next, I made a beak using a gold square paper clip, cutting it into a triangular shape and inserting the ends and glueing where the beak should be on the head. Then, I glued the eyes in place.

  7. Cutting two pieces of floral stems, I made the feet and painted them a gold color. These I inserted and glued to the bottom of the bird's body. This was an original idea I came up with after thinking what I might have that looked like birds feet!

  9. Because I had pink feathers, I painted mine blue and let them dry. Then, I glued them to the sides of the bird's body.
