I am in love with these cutie patootie birds! Aren't they the cutest? They come in a pack of 12 for $1.99 at Michael's...yeah, I know, super cheap! Of course...they don't come this way straight from the store. They are those fiberboard unfinished wood thingies. All I did was flip the bird upside down and trace it onto the back of cute scrapbook paper...cut it out...then mod podge it onto the front of the bird...wait for it to dry...then give it a few good coats of mod podge on the top to seal.
I am not quite finished with them yet, though. Mine need one more coat of mod podge, and then I'm gonna hot glue a cute vintage button on each one for an eye. I'm much too impatient to wait to show you the finished product. I couldn't wait to share my good deal with ya'll. If you're looking for a fun, cheap, easy weekend project...this is it. I have lots of different ideas rolling around in this crazy head of mine as to what I'm gonna do with these little birdies. I'm thinking a baby mobile, some cute pencil cups, more dollar store plaques, and baby shower party favors. Let me know if you give these a try. I'd love to see what you come up with!
