It looks intricate but the construction is really simple. Join us as Lottie talks through how to make a pair of Wearable Bird Wings and a matching Parrot hat complete with a big, bold beak and feathered dome.
This project can be adapted for both little kids and big kids to enjoy.
We created our Parrot Costume from a variety of recycled cardboard and Makedo parts available at mymakedo.com.
Step 1: Gather your materials
You will also need a pencil, measuring tape, scissors, craft knife, large dinner plate, a big corrugated cardboard box along with your large collection of colourful household packaging.
Step 2: Cut strips
To trim the corners into a nice wing shape, use a large dinner plate as a template. Draw a curve from the top edge of the corners on each strip and then cut to shape.
Step 3: Connect
Line up the 3 strips as shown and evenly space 3 hinges between the top strips and 2 along the bottom. Punch holes through the hinges and attach using Makedo Re-pins.
