For the legs, arrange two thin pipe cleaners at the bottom of the heart and glue in place. Bend them to make the legs.
Finish the body.
Glue the second heart directly on top of the first heart. This will cover the glued ends of the pipe cleaners and feathers.

I'll stick my neck out for you.

You ruffle my feathers.

Be my love bird.
