$4 Knock Off Spring Decor

IMG_2219sig

I had purchased these frames (they were plain black) from the dollar store a few months ago, I had to have them but wasn’t sure what to do with them. The HB doesn’t understand the logic but you know what I’m talking about! Want and need, same dif.

I had zipo-zilch in the form of Spring decor till Cinnaberry Suite saved me with her adorable project, please check her out.

The light went on and I was able to say “See HB I knew I needed them”.

IMG_2221sigBirdhouse shaped frame with the nest,  LUHVE IT! Not to mention my favorite blue!

IMG_2223sigI purchased the frames and bird from the dollar store, had the paint and moss.

For the frames I took tiffany blue craft acrylic, dry brushed it on and then wiped it off with a paper towel to give it an aged look. I hit the scrapbook paper stash to fill the frame. For the nests I started out using just the moss in a nest shape, things weren’t working out though. I had a huge mess and something that didn’t look anything like a nest! I grabbed a miniature grapevine circle, my glue gun, the moss and had a nest in 2 seconds. Shortcuts people, shortcuts. I plan to add eggs to the nests as soon as I find/make something the appropriate size for these mini nests.

Same process for the bird with one additional step, I watered down brown craft paint, brushed it on and then blotted with a paper towel. I love how it made the detail of the wings stand out.

See the gloom outside, I hope we get some nice Spring weather to go with my Spring decor soon!

Hey Nikki,
I LOVE them! I saw that house frame too...almost snatched one up. Now I'm kinda wishing I did. I'm glad you liked the idea. They turned out CUTE, CUTE!

Hi! I just found your blog and it's right down my alley :) I'm pretty cheap too, and my blog name is bird-themed too!(for a different reason) Anyway just thought I'd say great job and keep it up! You have some great posts on here.
