|the finished rustic bird decor for spring :)|
a tutorial is coming in early july for how you can make your OWN free cape cod chair
the button birds tutorial comes from angela of button bird designs and as she says this is a great project as it doesn't have to cost anything if you use what you have around. i really loved the vintage look of her designs and immediately signed up to follow her :) the tutorial is also pinned to my general crafts board on pinterest.
angela uses a combination of fabrics and papers to make her birds. for my one i went with a couple of scrap papers i had that needed using from the vast pile of bits i have doing nothing ... ahh, this is such a satisfying project in so many many ways! once the birdie pieces were cut, they are adhered to the pallet wood with mod podge or similar product. then once the mod podge is dry, sew up a button and glue it to the bird as its eye ...
|what you need, i used a picture from angela's blog as the bird template|
|templates cut, now mod podge them in place on a piece of rustic wood.|
|make sure you mod podge the entire front of the wood, then leave to dry|
|add an eye|
|done, day 359 is finished :)|
outcome: i love these, i am going to make a whole lot to put up in a collection for springtime. they are so cool and i absolutely adore their rustic look. oh, and did i mention how simple and cheap they were ... total bonus, but a great bonus nonetheless!
my heartfelt thanks to angela and her amazing design skills. i spent ages on her blog button bird designs looking at some totally inspiring projects that i am going to try in the coming months.
