What type of yarn is best for making a yarn bird?

A strong yarn, like acrylic, is recommended to make a yarn bird, since the knots have to be pulled tight to keep the bird together.

We used a medium/worsted weight yarn to make our yarn birds, but you could use any size. Use chunky yarn to make a bigger bird or wrap it around the cardboard fewer times. Similarly, use thinner yarn for a smaller bird, or wrap it more times.

How many colours of yarn do you need for yarn birds?

We like the look of the tri-coloured bird, with different colours for the face, back, and wings. But you can also use the same colour for both the back and wings.

You can even use more than three colours to make your bird. Try adding 2 or more colours of yarn to the wing bundle for a really cool look!

What size yarn bird does this make?

Our yarn bird is roughly 3-1/4 inches tall, and 4-1/4 inches long from beak to tail. The exact length will depend on how long or short you cut the tail.

Do I have to use stuffing inside the yarn bird?

You need to use some kind of stuffing in the bird, but it definitely doesn’t need to be fiber fill stuffing. You can easily use cotton balls, scrunch up a tissue, or even a piece of paper and use that to stuff the bird instead.

What if I don’t have beads for the yarn bird’s eyes?

If you don’t have black beads for the bird’s eyes you can also use black rhinestones, googly eyes, or cut small circles from black felt or craft foam.

How can I display my yarn bird?

These yarn birds are such a cute homemade decoration for spring! You can place them in a little wooden bowl or a faux bird’s nest. If you have a decorative birdhouse these yarn birds look adorable glued to the perch!

You can also attach your yarn bird to a spring wreath, place it on the edge of a plant pot, turn it into a Christmas ornament, or even have it guard your aquarium from naughty cats.

DIY yarn birds

Making a yarn bird is a great stash busting project! They’re simple enough for kids to make, and cute enough for adult farmhouse decor.

Choose your favourite colours to make one of these yarn birds. You can use realistic bird colours, pastel spring colours, or fun and bright colours like we did!
