Start out with a pom-pom the color of your favorite Angry Birds character. I made the red bird and also a pig! I used the pictures on this page as the pattern for my necklaces.
To make the red bird, I started with a red pom-pom as the base. I cut a small, tan circle out of felt and glued it to the bottom of the pom-pom. I cut two small triangles to make the beak and glued them in paste. I cut a small piece of chenille stem to make eyebrows and glued on two wiggle eyes below them. I topped it off with a small, red feather on the top of the head.
I made the pig using a green pom-pom for the head and two smaller green pom-poms for the ears. I cut a small oval out of green felt and glued it on to be the snout. I also used felt to make the crown on the pig's head. To make the nostrils and add details to the ears, I used small, black beads. I added too wiggle eyes, and voila!
Finally, put a dab of glue on the side of the bead, do not cover or block the holes! Stick the bead onto the pom-pom. You will string the ribbon or yarn through the bead so you can wear the necklace so you want the holes of the bead to be on the sides of your character's face.
Once all the glue has dried, you can string the bead onto a piece of ribbon or yarn and you have your very own Angry bird necklace! You can make one for every video game fan you know.
