Happy Friday Friends!!! I am in London, England right now, but I do have this fun post for you today! With spring on it’s way, I have started decorating for it, and the other day, I made these easy DIY paper birds! I don’t know, if you remember the branch I hung above my dining room table by the big window, last fall. During the Christmas season, I decorated it with ornaments and now, for spring, I really felt like hanging something from it as well. These DIY paper birds seemed just right!
I’ve seen really nice book page projects and thought, I’d give it a try with these birds as well. I had some old, already read books ready to be used for this. But first, I glued about 3 to 4 pages together, to make the birds a little more stable. I also had other, really spring~looking flower card stock that I also wanted to use for this. So, when the pages were all dried up and stuck together, I traced a very simple bird silhouette on both, the flower paper and the book pages. I had a little wooden bird that I used for tracing.
I cut them out and pinched a thin golden wire through the top of each bird, to hang them on the branch with. That was all! I only put them on the one side of the branch, as I didn’t want to have them all over. Less is more, you gotta know when to stop! So here I stopped! This was a fun and easy craft and looks really nice, I think. I’ll be showing some more spring decor soon!
