Directions

Print
  • Step 1

    Create a template for your birds on card stock. Cut it out. This size bird is 5.5 in. long and 5.5 in. wide.

  • Step 2

    Make a piece of Duck Tape® fabric that is big enough to trace your bird template onto. This is 5 in. long and 6.5 in. wide.

  • Step 3

    Trace the bird template from step 1 onto your Duck Tape® fabric.

  • Step 4

    Cut out your bird. Repeat steps 2-3 to make a second identical bird.

  • Step 5

    Cut a piece of Bubble Wrap® that is about 12 in. long and 8 in. wide or big enough to fit your bird template. Fold your piece so there are 2 layers of bubble wrap and trace your bird template onto it. 

     

  • Step 6

    Cut out both layers of Bubble Wrap® so you have 2 birds.

  • Step 7

    Place your Bubble Wrap® birds in between your 2 Duck Tape® birds from step 4 and cover both sides in Duck Tape®.

  • Step 8

    Cut out your bird leaving a small amount of space around the bird so it stays stuck together.

  • Step 9

    Cut a piece of wire with your wire cutters that is 12 in. long. Ask an adult for assistance if necessary.

  • Step 10

    Bend your wire into a “U” shape and then bend the ends up and together and secure with a piece of Duck Tape®.

  • Step 11

    Cut a small hole in the bottom of your bird and insert its wire stand. Secure with Duck Tape®.

  • Step 12

    Use these instructions and your favorite Duck Tape® prints and colors to make other birds or spring shapes.
