Sweet Bird Garland

I was browsing blogs the other day, and saw a tutorial for this sweet bird garland...I just had to try it. Elizabeth from Creative Breathing posts the most wonderf0ul tutorials on her blog, she has easy to follow directions, with lots of pictures. I know this first photo of mine is hard to see, so click on it, and you will see how sweet my garland turned out. ( I just hung two of these shelves in my craft room, and boy have I had fun showcasing the lovely things I've purchased from talented fellow bloggers.)....I did big and small birds, and alternated with sweet spring colors. It was such a blast to make.
Each bird has a sweet garland of flowers around its neck.
Sorry my pretty pink birdie is blurry....silly camera.
I hooked the birds together with silver tinsel stems, the birds were top heavy, and ribbon just didn't hold it in place.
Check out Creative Breathings blog, for lots of other fun tutorials.
Have a lovely weekend.
