Little Birdies

A while back on a shopping excursion to Michael's I came across these cute wooden bird ornaments.  They were carved out of wood with legs and feet made from metal wire.  I bought a few of them as I thought they would be fun to use as decorations.

I didn't want to hang them so my first task was to remove the metal loop from the back with needle nose pliers.  I then filled in the hole with wood filler and sanded it smooth.

I painted the birds in fun colors with craft paint I had and set them out on the shoe cabinet by the front door for a cheerful greeting as you come or go.

  1. I hope you don't mind that I pinned these. I noticed you hadn't and they are way too cute to go unpinned :)
