Cut the Paper Plate in half creating a ying-yang shape.

Use one-half for the body and use the remainder to create a large heart shaped wing, a triangular beak and big circle for the eye.

Using PVA glue, attach the wing and beak.

If you have pipe cleaners to hand – excellent, otherwise I wouldn’t worry as I consider them to be an optional extra!

You will need one pipe cleaner cut in two. Bend one piece into a V shape and leave the other slightly longer piece straight.

Simply place the long pipe cleaner into the centre of the V, align and twist in the middle.

Using some sticky tape, attach the legs to the back of the paper plate.

To finish off, add a black pupil to the circle and glue it onto the love bird.
