My newest project is to make Angry Birds with Walnut Shells.
First I took a good look at the red bird, because red is the most famous of the angry birds and that’s the one I decided to make. I made two red birds – one flying and one standing.
So, what materials do I need to make angry birds with walnut shells?
The first bird is the flying bird:
Red bird 1
First, I cut out ribbons in the required shapes and glued them to the inner surfaces of the walnut shells. This I did before gluing the two halves together. Notice that I used orange ribbon instead of red, as I did not have a red ribbon. So, I had to color the orange ribbon red in the next step.
The next step is to glue up the two halves of the shell and color them red. Notice that I have also attached a piece of string, so I can suspend the bird in air.
It now looks like this from the top.
And like this from the bottom. Notice that the belly of the bird is not painted.
Next, I made a tiny beak with a paper cone (yellow paper) and attached it to the shell.
When suspended, it now looks like this – almost a bird.
It is now time to attach the wiggly eyes. The large eyes bring it to life
The final step is to attach the eyebrows that give it the furious look. I used pieces of black ribbon for the eyebrows.

I made the 2nd bird, which is the standing bird, in pretty much the same way I made the penguins.
Just like I did for the penguins, I used pistachio shells for wings and feet and a paper cone for beak.
Angry birds have large, angry eyes. So, I have attached the wiggly eyes. The bird is complete, except for the eyebrows. It doesn’t look angry yet, does it?
Finally, I attached the eyebrows. Notice the transformation from a cute bird to an angry bird.
It’s really easy to make angry birds with walnut shells – even children can make them with the materials mentioned above. I had a lot of fun making them. I hope you too enjoy making them or at least reading about how I made them. Please drop a comment if you do.
