How to make a Colourful Cardboard Birds Craft

Cardboard Bird Craft - Supplies:

  • Cardboard
  • Acrylic paint - assorted colours
  • Paper - various colours and patterns
  • 1” circle hole punch
  • Googly eyes, small
  • Scissors
  • Glue

Birds craft - Instructions:

STEP 1: Prepare your workstation. 

This is a super-duper easy project, yet it's always a good idea to gather your supplies and prepare the surface you'll be working on to avoid any messy situations. Take your cardboard and use it to cut different shapes like ovals, squares, circles, and rectangles in sizes.

These shapes will be your birds bodies.

STEP 2: Paint, paint, paint!

Paint each cardboard shape using bright, colourful colours. Let them dry before moving on to the next step.

STEP 3: Make paper circles.

Using a puncher or just some scissors, make circle shapes out of the papers. Use different coloured papers and even some with patterns.

If you have any leftover scrapbook papers lying around, now is the time to put it to use!

STEP 4: Add the birds wings, eyes, beak and legs.

Lay the circles out on your painted cardboard shapes. Overlap the circles creating your birds wings, when you are happy with the shape glue them in place.
