The only thing that gets me through winter, is the hope of spring! I love decorating my home after the holiday season with little pieces of springtime!
This bird decor project was so simple- I feel bad even calling it a “project.”
- 3″ Nest on Twig Stem
- 3″ Mini Mushroom Bird
- David Tutera Elegance White Distressed Frame
- Large White Tag (optional)
- Plastic Eggs
- Thrifted Dictionary (or background paper of your choice)
- Green Moss (optional)
- Hot Glue Gun & Glue Sticks
A quick tip here: whenever I am framing paper, or even photos- I use the glass from the inside of the frame as my template.
For my bird decor project, I used a page from an old dictionary that I thrifted. I wanted a vintage feel. You could use whatever paper you like for the background of your frame.
Trim the paper to fit the glass- and then adhere it to the backing that comes with the frame. Discard the glass.
Apply a generous amount of hot glue to the back of the nest and branches.
Now you can add the eggs to the nest. I found some plastic eggs in the floral department of my local craft store. If you are unable to find plastic eggs, you can always use some craft beads.
Adhere the eggs into the nest with hot glue.
Then add your bird.
I computer generated a quote on a plain white tag, and added the tag to this bird decor project. This is optional, of course. 🙂
I used a little green moss to cover up any piles of stray hot glue. I think the moss adds a rustic touch to this bird decor, too.
