We will need a variety of wool “bird” colors. For bullfinch: black, red, dark red, white, gray. For titmouse: white, wishing, blue, dark blue, gray, black, light green. And silent Sliver or other unnecessary for “serious” projects wool.

– A pair of scissors;

– Thread (not necessarily, you can use thin wool, so imperceptibly);

– Glue gun (or other adhesive for bonding eye and beak);

– Seeds and bead-eyes.

Making the foundation birds – lump Sliver overtighten thread. You can use padding polyester, loose a ball of yarn, old sweater, cut into strips and formed into a ball, foam … You can use other materials, even paper crumpled into a ball, apparently the difference is not (try to guess what the basis of a titmouse and Sparrows). But if you intend to give a bird from hand to hand, it is best to choose a Sliver. On the basis of soft bird feels just like a living, but palpable piece of paper, even if you use a soft cloth …

Break away from combed sliver three strips of wool suitable color: red – tum, thicker, black – back, the longest and gray – wings, the thinnest. Now add liveliness: breast “priporoshit” dark red fur and white. On the wings lay out a thin strip of black hair and an even finer white.

A little trick, red ribbon bend not exactly in half, tinted side of (breast) are doing a little longer. The result is a plump “ruffled” bird. If the bend in the middle, will wiry athletic bird 🙂 Please do not tight bandages red band. Then black, and have it to the red letter “G”. Black tying very tight! After allot half strands left and right, grabs a knot-head and tight bandages again. Put a photo here titmouse, as Snigir at these stages was not photogenic 🙂

 Bows “wings” basis and insert it between the breast and back. Bandages, releasing wings.

Puts wings like a real Snigir: first tie gray fur on top of white and black stripes. Bandages.

Give shape to a ponytail and wings. Wool is best not to cut like a thread and pull-pull out, being careful not to overdo it and do not damage the bird. Glue suitable size eyes and beak-seed. And here he is our handsome! Someone made sure he slipped grains.

Missed steps for making titmouse. Here we use more colors of wool. The upper strand – head – blue core, along the bottom edge was put white strip on the main blue – dark blue fibers and literally a little yellow. Tum yellow, then added a couple of hairs light green on the right photo shows. Lower – wings – gray on them dark blue fur and a pair of bright blue fibers. Then gather as a bullfinch. Is that pay attention to the arrangement of flowers on the head, turned to white where you want (at the bottom), and dark on top.
