How do I Make a Stork for a Baby Shower?

Updated November 21, 2016

Decorations are an integral part of creating a unique, welcoming and memorable baby shower for a friend or family member. Themes for a baby shower can focus on gender, using pinks or blues, or can be made neutral by incorporating common baby themes, such as the stork. Creating a stork for a baby shower can be done in numerous ways, depending on whether you want a three-dimensional figure, a flat wall hanging or a combination.

Roll out the butcher paper on the floor so it is flat. Use a print out of a stork line drawing to trace or copy the outlined image of a large stork on the paper.

Colour eyes and a beak on the stork's face.

Cut out the stork outline.

Tear the tissue paper into pieces the size of a palm.

Scrunch a piece of tissue paper by pinching the bottom and fluffing up the edges. Glue this piece onto the stork to create a feathery texture. Repeat until the stork is covered.

Allow the tissue paper to dry. The glue will be heavy and may need to dry overnight.

Nail or use heavy duty tape to attach the stork figure to a wall.
