Glittered Wallpaper Birds

Introduction

Craft these whimsical sparkling birds for a colorful addition to any room.

Materials

Steps

  1. Step 1

    Print template for bird 1, 2, 3, or 4 (see Tools and Materials). Enlarge or reduce to desired size. Adhere template to mat board with Xyron or spray adhesive. Cut out bird shape with craft knife.

  2. Step 2

    Using ballpoint glue pen, apply glue to parts of the bird you'd like to glitter. Sprinkle glitter and shake off excess.

  3. Step 3

    Edge entire bird with gold-paint pen.

  4. Step 4

    Print template for base and brace, enlarging or reducing to the same percentage as bird, if necessary. Trace base and brace that corresponds to bird from template onto mat board. (Note: For bird 1, a brace is not necessary.)

  5. Step 5

    Glue bird onto base with craft glue. Glue brace onto back of bird.

    I made two birds last year and they are beautiful. I have a little more time this season, so I'm going to make the other two, and also some more of various sizes to tuck into the tree branches.
