Forgive me for my corniness, but I love puns and we think this craft is the absolute tweetest. With Mother’s Day and Father’s Days coming, this is a cute homemade card idea. Print out the free templates provided to color and decorate the pieces or use pretty patterned paper to form your tweet birdie.
These yarn art pieces are inspired by the book ‘Art & Max’.
We love finding inspiration for arts and craft projects from the books that we read. One of our new favorites is ‘Art & Max‘ (affiliate link). It is a wonderful book about two lizards. One is an artist and the other is an aspiring artist. When Arthur (Art) suggests that Max paint him, things quickly get colorful and then begin to slowly unravel. The lines and the colors in the book inspired these yarn art creations.
We have been on a bit of a mixed media winter art kick over the past couple of weeks. My daughter really enjoys it and we have created some beautiful pieces together.

The beauty of mixed media is there are so many options in creating a piece of art. You can use paint, markers, ink, crayons, newspaper, construction paper, tissue paper or embellishments such as buttons or glitter to create your masterpiece.
We have been loving making them and here is our latest.
