Easter is spilling into every crevice of my home this year
(hmm... wonder why? New craft blog???)
and this chick is the latest craft, on the stairs this time!
|And there's actually two, my first try, the smaller behind the larger, didn't turn out so "Easter-y"|
I used some posterboard leftover from who knows what and drew a basic bird shape, about 2 feet wide at the widest and 1 ft high at the highest and cut out some leftover fabric. I sewed the basic shape together, with burlap cut out for a beak, and then stuffed it. For the eyes I just layered circles of bird page with one circle of turquoise crepe paper and then a brilliant blue button on top. I should have sewn the eye on, but this bird isn't going in the wash ever with that paper so hot glue worked! The wing is a cardboard shape that I covered. I made a few twists of book pages (like the wreath tutorials out there) and then wrapped layers of crepe paper and book page over the top of those. Anyway, hope you like it!! If you guys need a tutorial, let us know in a comment and we'll make a tutorial!
