STEP 3

  • Adhere eyes, beak, and wattle onto front of body. Adhere wings onto sides of body.

STEP 4

  • Fold feathers in half; spot glue ends and insert in body. Let dry.

STEP 5

  • For legs, measure and cut two 9"-long orange chenille stem lengths. For feet, twist ends into three shapes. Thread red, yellow, and orange pony bead onto each leg. Insert legs into bottom of body; spot glue.

STEP 6

  • Adhere red feather scrap on top of head.

Tip

  • 1. Take your time when wrapping foam ball so yarn lengths are close to one another.
