Birds and Beads

Hi everyone... I'm back with another bird project for you!  Do you go to Michael's a lot?  I find myself running in there all the time.  I find my thriftiest craft projects there.  For today's project, I bought a $1.99 package of chipboard birds.  I painted them with tan and turquoise.

Next I traced the birds and cut them out of echo park http://echoparkpaper.com/ paper. I cut them a bir smaller than my tracing so you can see the painting.

Next I added a wing and an eye.

I decided to make these 4 birds hang vertically.  I strung beads on pink baker's twine and strung the birds together.

So simple and easy!


  1. Jenni, Such fun and I love the beads too! I wish I had a "M" closer. My closest is an hour away. Great project! Have a great day!

  2. Love the birds and the beads even more

  4. Lovely! I really like that line of EP paper. I purchased the whole line and can't wait to get started with it. Birds, maybe!

  5. Those are as pretty as pretty gets, thank you. I stopped by from "I should be mopping".
