smoothfoam Bird Ornament

These easy bird ornaments are fun for the whole family to make. Hang them from the tree or place in a wreath or holiday centerpiece.

Materials:

1-3/4″ Smoothfoam egg
Two 1” Smoothfoam eggs
1” Smoothfoam ball
Acrylic paint
Glitter
Tacky glue
Small acrylic jewels: two rounda and two diamonda
Craft knife, sandpaper, paint brush

1.  Sand the seams of the Smoothfoam pieces smooth. Cut the 1” eggs in half lengthwise, sand and rough edges and cut side. The pilot hole on the ball will be used for the bird’s beak.  Sand the bottom of the ball (head) and the top of the large egg (body) where the ball will be glued.

2.  Glue the ball to the large egg. Glue the half-eggs on the sides of the large egg for wings. Glue another half-egg for a tail.

3.  Paint the bird with the color of your choice. Add glitter while the paint is wet and glue on any embellishments that you like.

4.  Glue two diamond-shaped jewels together in the pilot hole for the beak. Glue round jewels (or beads) on the head for eyes.

Push an eye pin down into the bird’s back for a ribbon hanger or poke a toothpick in the bottom for adding to a wreath or centerpiece.
