One fun decoration I created for my son's Angry Birds party was an Angry Bird lantern.
- 8" red paper lanterns, assembled
- red feathers
- printed out face images (two per lantern), see below
- double sided tape
I cut out two faces -- one for the front and one for the back. Next I used double sided tape to attach the faces to each side of the lantern. I simply tucked the feathers into a metal loop at the top of the lantern, tied a string to the metal hanger, and hung it up.
I used a similar method to turn my modern Bubble Lamp into a huge white Angry Bird. For the white bird I used black feathers and printed out the face onto a sheet of transparent vellum so that light could shine through the face once the lamp was turned on. A large white paper lantern could be used as well.
I didn't make any other birds or pigs, but the same method could be used to make any of the round characters. I had hoped to find smaller light blue lanterns to make some blue Angry Birds in time for the party, but I ran out of time. If you enlarge the images, they can be used to make even larger lantern decorations. My large white bird made a very big impact hanging over goodie bags by my front door, and I think a large red bird would have been equally as fun!
