Christmas Bird

I made this little bird for the Design Team at the Crafty Scrapper!  We could do anything we wanted to I made this little bird.  I had seen one similar to this awhile back so I decided to make this one up myself!  I cut out the bird (2 pieces) and cut out part of a flourish from Maya Roads and then sewed it all together.  I added a pearl for the eye and cut out a little hole to place the white ribbon through.  I had a little crown from Tim Holtz so I painted it and added it as a crown.  I found at Hobby Lobby some little bird's nest and filled them with stuffing that I had around my home.  I also found at Hobby Lobby little bird eggs which I painted one silver and the other gold and added sprinkles to each.  I placed them in the next and added flowers, snowflakes, and stars!  I glued this all on a wooden spool which I painted and added ribbon and a stick pin from Maya Roads.

This is what the little nest looks like up close!  It really took me awhile to put this all together but I hope you really enjoy looking at this little bird!

Thank you for taking a peek and I wish you and your family a very happy Christmas!!
