Our felted cardinal bird has been a favorite among the team since our craft assistant Jessica created him a couple days ago. She is so clever! There is something about the soft wool roving and the felt features that make him simply irresistible. We are all in love. A vibrant red cardinal is the ideal felt bird to make for the Holiday season, symbolizing hope, love, pride, focus and energy – perfect! For the body of our cardinal bird we used a 3″ egg shaped foam ball. We covered it in wool felt roving which we attached to the egg using a roving needle. The head of our felt bird is made by creating a ball out of the wool roving felt and the wings are made from a little felt fabric in two shades of red. His feet are made with floral wire and everything is assembled using a low temperature glue gun. To make this cute little fella for the Holidays you can follow our DIY tutorial below. Make an entire flock of felted cardinal birds for your tree or just make the one for your Holiday mantle, give him as a gift or keep him all to yourself! Either way, making this DIY felt cardinal bird is sure to bring you plenty of joy this Holiday!
