Instructions

Steps
Step 1
1. Start by painting cardboard tubes. Using zig-zag pinking shears cut your coloured paper into strips approximately 1 inch x 12 inch (2cm x 30cm) and taper one end.
Steps
Step 2
Starting at the tapered end, lightly roll the paper strips up around a pen to give them a curl. To give the parrot’s tail feathers texture, cut into the middle of the paper strip diagonally all along the length.
Steps
Step 3
Then repeat along the other side starting and finishing at the midpoint between two cuts on the opposite side.
Steps
Step 4
Fan the tail feathers out and staple or glue the flat ends together. Glue or tape the parrot’s tail into the inside of your painted cardboard tube.
Steps
Step 5
To make the parrot craft’s head plume repeat steps using short paper strips of about 2-3 inches. Finally glue googly eyes and cut some simple feet and a beak from yellow paper and finish the parrot’s head.
