Angry Birds Pom Pom Craft

We’ve joined the Angry Birds craze. These little birds are everywhere and we can’t seem to get enough. Today we’re crafting little angry bird yarn pom-poms, crashing down our tower of greedy little pigs. Aren’t they adorable? It’s a super easy craft so feel free to make as many as you want! Takes no time at all to make a whole group of these angry birds and pigs. Your kids are going to love crafting and playing with these angry bird pom poms. What the video below for the full how-to!

Angry Birds Pom Pom Craft

Supplies:

  • yarn
  • craft glue
  • googly eyes
  • craft paper
  • stacking cups

Instructions:

1. Create your mini pom poms with your yarn. There are a lot of ways to make these, but to make them a super small and the perfect size, I used the pom pom tutorial from Meyamo. I printed out her template for winding the yarn around, cutting, and tying. I used the small pattern for the red angry bird and the medium pattern for the pigs.

2. Once you’ve got your pom puff balls, add the faces. Glue on googly eyes, cut out paper noses for each and glue those on too. Even little black yarn pieces for the angry bird’s eyebrows. Let these dry. *For the bird, you can leave a little of the “tying” string longer at the top to act as the feathers that stick out on top or just glue an extra piece of yarn on top.

3. Build a tower for the pigs. We used small paper drinking cups stacked in a tower shape. We also used a popsicle stick to leave a little space for the pigs to fit inside.

Now sling shot your angry birds pom-poms right into that tower. Those pigs never stood a chance!

  1. Hi Marie,

    I love this idea! I would like to use it for a young adult program at the library in which I work. Would you mind if I used your photos for advertising purposes?

  2. Great idea! My son loves those littele birds and pigs and now I can make those angry animals with him. I must be a little proud, because Angry Birds game is Finnish game and I am writing this little greetings for you from Finland =)

  3. Love this idea! I just finished making 30 red birds and 30 pigs to put in goody bags for my son’s Angry Bird party. I glued the eyes and beak/nose onto pre-made pom poms, instead of making those. I think it will be a great treat to get a game in the goody bag instead of all that usual plastic toy junk! Thanks for the neat idea!

  4. Fun! You could also just use a fuzz ball from the store, and add the eyes to it if you are less crafty like me.

  5. This is such a cute idea I’m borrowing it as a teen craft at my library! Wondering if it’s possible for me to use a picture from your tutorial in my fliers? Credited as you like, of course.
    Thanks,
    Katie

  6. Made these today. My son was so excited we didn’t even bother with eyes or beaks or anything. He’s having a blast. Thanks.

  7. I am going to make these in my kindergarten class and turn them into Christmas Ornaments, for our Angry Birds Themed Christmas Tree :)

  8. I am making a set to bring for Thanksgiving. We have a big family reunion with lots of kids. This will be a good activity for them. Maybe they can make some too.

  9. I wanted to tell you that I’m making this as a white elephant gift! I LOVE IT! I also think that some Popsicle sticks are great for the pig contruction as well! (it looks like you used them in your first picture) Thanks for the idea!

  10. Awesome! Just finished making this for my kids! They love it! I used the biggest template to make the pigs, the middle one to make red birds & the smallest to make baby birds. Thanks so much!

  12. OMG! I Super Duper Love This So Do My 2yr Old Son, Almost 4yr Old Son, And My Hubby! We Are A House Full Of Angry Birds Fanatic And My Oldest Son Even Has A Stuffed Angry Bird That Makes Noise That His Grandma Bought Him And He Throws It At Us Pretending To Hit Pigs, But With This He Will Just Go CRAZY Over It! Thanks For The Awesome Idea!

  13. I love these! I’m embarrassed to admit that I’ve been stuck on the same level in Angry Birds for at least 10 hours. What a waste of time :) I’m going to make these pompoms today. They’ll make me laugh every day.

  14. Thanks so much for this craft suggestion! My sons are really enjoying it (show me a little boy who doesn’t love building and crashing towers!) – however, I have a new appreciation for the time consumed by making pom-poms! I’d never done it before and I think I will do the store-bought for future projects! :)

  15. We had a GREAT time making and playing with these! Thanks so much for a fabulous idea. (I was lazier than you though, and we just used pom poms and self stick foam and eyeballs.)

    My kids played for hours! (And loved setting up levels for dad too!)

  16. This quite possibly might be the simplest, easiest and quickest project I can do and make my husband AND my daughter happy. What a wonderful idea. Thank you for sharing this!!!!

  17. Did you see the dad that made an angry bird cake for his sons birthday? I can see a kid party with lots of bird flinging fun activities.

  18. My husband loves this! We are so addicted to this game, between the two of us we play for hours every night on our phone! Such a great idea.

  19. This is amazing! I shared it on facebook, and even made an angry bird tonight :) Thanks for the great idea! I’ve been feeling left out since I dont have a smart phone, but now I can play all I want!

  20. Buahahaha!!! I died when I saw these little guys and knew exactly what they were!! I LOVE this game….however it makes me a tad angry….darn those birds not going where I want them to go…

    I will have to make some of these for sure; my hubby liked your little guys too :o)
