#3 - Bird Ornaments

12 Days of Homemade Ornaments.

If you like crafty projects,this one is definitely for you. Decorate these birds as much or as little as your heart desires. Guaranteed to be pretty!

For this project, I used a vinyl blind slat (you could use foam board or cardboard) and a bird template. I found one on the internet and printed it off. And you will need embellishments.

Trace the bird and the wing and cut them out.

Next, cover the bird and wing with fabric or pretty paper. I used a glue stick. Don't forget to insert a twine loop underneath the fabric or paper so you will have a hanger for your bird.

Now, decorate to your hearts content. The sky's the limit... 
Don't you love the little clothespins for legs. I had an old beaded necklace that I took apart and used for the eyes.

 Birds of a feather..... flocking together!
I hope you were inspired! Thank you so much for stopping by
