The Birds

This is actually the after picture and I really think this little guy is happier with his makeover than he looks.
I have been revamping some dollar store birds lately into some new Spring decorations. These are the birds. They are painted resin birds. Realistic looking huh? I sprayed them black and then painted them with blue acrylic paint which I quickly wiped off.

They needed a home so aftr much hunting I found this lovely clock at the thrift store. I was very excited, I have been watching for awhile.

I took the top off, unscrewed the clock parts and then painted the bottom white. Oh yay, I whacked the bird sitting on a log against a rock in the back yard to get rid of the log. The painted that bird with the black and the blue paint.

I made a little nest out of some Spanish moss I had around and now this little fella is bringing Spring inside.
Total cost $2.50

I'm diggin' the birds Michelle. What a great find. See, that is the difference between you and I. I go into the dollar store and see crap and you see treasures! What a talent.

Love, love, love them! Did you find the birds at a dollar store recently? Was it Dollar Tree, perchance? I'd love to make some birdies of my own -- feeling so inspired!!!

So glad I saw your link at the Flamingo Toes "Think Pink" this Sunday!
