|CREATE|robin felt ornament




This was a craft I designed for our Christmas Boo box, I put all the cut out supplies and placed them in a bag for T to put together, this is the sort of craft that will be included in our Boo boxes, all you would need is glue.

We just glued our robin with children's pva glue but you or an older child could sew together instead.

The template for this craft can be found here if you'd like to have a go yourself.

Supplies
1 square brown felt
1 square red felt
White and yellow felt scraps
Red ribbon
2 tiny beads
(I've got stuffing in the picture below, but decided against using it!)


Starting with one of the brown circles, glue the wings in place and then apply glue around he edge of the circle.  Put the ribbon in place and top with the second brown circle.


Apply glue to the red felt and position.


Attach the eyes and beak using glue.


T loved doing this craft and it literally took minutes to make.


We finished off with attaching the beads for the eyes and leaving to dry overnight.


If you use the template to make one of these, we'd love to see it, please do leave a link in comments or tag me!
