Spring Chicken

I am so behind in blogging what I have been up to! This is my 6th blog post of the night :)

I found these cute little birdies at Michael's. They were on sale for about a buck each. I also picked up some pretty scrapbook paper to Mod Podge onto the birdies.

 First, I painted the birdies so I didn't have to mess with covering the top part as they are almost 1/2 an inch thick. 
 I traced and cut out the pattern from the birdie and modpodged the front and back.
Here is a good shot of the texture of the ModPodge.

So cute! Each bird was one buck and the scrapbook paper is like 60 cents. So this was a fun and affordable craft!

  2. Are these birds made of wood? Paper? Just want to determine which part of the store you found them in.

  4. Hi ladies! Thanks for the comments. The birds are wood. They were in the isle behind the dollar stuff. There was lots of different wood items but it was not by the wood section. Does that make sense? :)
