Glitter Bird Centerpiece

Source: Martha Stewart Living, Volume 145 December 2005


  • Small craft brush

  • Feathered birds

  • White glue

  • Glitter in various textures and hues

  • Thin lametta tinsel

  • Branch


  1. Using brush, coat a bird's tail with glue; sprinkle spoonfuls of glitter on top. Let glue dry; shake off excess glitter. Repeat with wings, then body and head.

  2. Secure tinsel to one end of the branch with glue, then wrap branch, tucking in a new piece of tinsel when necessary. Tuck end of last piece under to secure. Fasten birds to branch with the wires on their feet.
