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
- craft glue
- googly eyes
- craft paper
- stacking cups
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!
We’re also making a few Angry Love Birds as well. It’s the perfect Valentine’s Day craft! Check them out:
Love the Angry bird pom pom idea. I’ll try to make the whole collection from their game.
Angry Birds….My lil one just loves them, i will try making this with him this weekend.
Yay, that’s great. Have fun making and playing with these crafty birds :)
This will keep my kids and I occupied for hours :-)
Oh how I love this! Super excited for my son’s 5th birthday party!! Thanks for the idea’s
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?
thats so cool.
thanks for the idea! my son loves them! i linked your post on my blog. http://www.thelettereblog.com/2012/05/20/angry-bird-pom-poms/
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 =)
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!
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.
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.
I linked this post to our Angry Birds paper bag game that we made over the weekend. Love these! http://www.toddlerapproved.com/2012/02/paper-bag-angry-birds.html
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.
I am going to make these in my kindergarten class and turn them into Christmas Ornaments, for our Angry Birds Themed Christmas Tree :)
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.
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!
Thanks for the idea! I changed it up a little and my kids and I had a great time making this. I posted a link to your craft tutorial on my blog at http://craftycristy.blogspot.com/2011/08/angry-birds-craft.html
Thanks a lot for this great idea, just what I was looking for, for my sons birthday.
These are beyond cute Marie! I’ve featured them on Fun Family Crafts :) http://funfamilycrafts.com/pom-pom-angry-birds/
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!
This is so great. I’m planning an Angry Birds birthday party and these will fit right in!

What a cute and simple project! I’ve included it in my link round-up on the FaveCrafts Blog: http://www.favecraftsblog.com/link-love-angry-birds-crafts/
Would you like to publish your tutorial on FaveCrafts? Email me if you’re interested :)
These are sooo cute! My Hubby & I both play Angry Birds all the time!!
I think I might have to make the ninja and yellow birds as well! What a great idea!!!
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.
Haha I love those! Especially the pigs!
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! :)
These are so adorable! I can’t wait to try them. thank you for sharing!
I recently made 3 Angry birds costumes for friends going to a festival. Have a look if you like!
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!)
Kimber – That’s a perfect solution. Those poms and self stick foam and eyes are a great way to craft these!! Thanks for sharing.
The angry birds are great!! I like anything to do with birds, and these look easy and doable for the younger set. Please check out mu craft octupi and my handmade birds on http://sunnyhilldairy.blogspot.com. Thank you!
We had so much fun with this over mid-winter break last week – thanks for a boredom buster! http://whatarewedoingtodaymom.blogspot.com/2011/02/anger-management-with-angry-birds.html
Love it Marie!

Really cute – what a fun idea!
Love it! :)

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!
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)

Stop it. Just stop it.
I shared this on my FB! So clever! I love it.
These make me laugh. My husband is an Angry Birds fanatic: They just frustrate me. I’m Pinterest-marking this for a Father’s Day gift.
Cute! My kids would love this, they love to play Angry Birds (or Mad Birds as my 6yr old calls it lol).
I am definitely going to try this with my therapy kids.
My hubby would so love something physical he could fling at those pigs!! And don’t get him started about helmets……
My son would love this, I think I am going to have to make him a set. Thanks for sharing!!
My husband would adore this. He spends more time flinging birds at pigs than doing anything else. lol Thanks for sharing. BTW, I Stumbled it for you. :-)
Yes, I have one of those husbands too! Thanks for the stumble.
So do I! What is it with these guys and this game? :P
What an awesome idea!
