DIY Spring Birds

Hi I’m Paula with The Housewives of Riverton and I was so excited when I got this cute little bird trio from The Wood Connection. I loved how round they were and was so happy to be working on a spring craft!

These little guys were super easy for me to put together, I honestly think it only took me about a half hour total! Here’s everything you’ll need!

paper in desired colors (I thought the bright green, yellow, and pink were perfect for spring!)

 

Paint – I used Delta Creamcoat in Apple Green, Crocus Yellow, and Think Pink!

Embellishments of your choice

 

To start, make sure you sand any rough edges on your birds and then dust them off. Trace any outlines you need for the papers. Paint your birds and their wings.

After the paint is dry, use your wood glue to adhere the paper your birds and wings. Make sure you don’t use too much wood glue or else your paper will bubble and warp.

Next you are going to glue your wings on and add your embellishments.

For the large green bird, I added a few cute sticker button embellishments and added some sparkly tulle to the tail.

For the medium pink bird I wrapped some pink yarn around the tail. I loved that it gave it some texture!

For the small yellow bird, I added a cute bow of baker’s twine.

 

Like I said these were super easy to put together and I love the fun, spring feel that they bring to my living room decor! I highly encourage you to check out these and all the other cute, spring projects at The Wood Connection!
