and thought they would be fun to recreate with wood.
To give the birds some bling,
we used metallic paint and green rhinestones for the eyes.
Nicole cut the bird shapes out of pine on her scroll saw.
To add texture, we used puffy paint to create scroll embellishments on the bird.
After the puffy paint dried, we gave the birds a couple coats of metallic paint.
To protect the paint from water, we sealed the birds with several coats of polyurethane. For the legs, we cut garden bamboo stakes and glued them into drilled holes.
We just love them, they are so fun and whimsical in the garden!
Thanks Melinda for the great summer bling theme!
