One Kings Lane Inspired Bluebirds



When I was browsing through Michael's I came across these adorable little wooden birds. I didn't really have a plan for them but I knew I needed them. Then, as I was browsing through the One Kings Lane website I came across these bird figurines. BINGO!!!

This simple project only required a few materials:



Wooden Birds // Sponge Paint Brush // Acrylic Paint // Masking Tape



I didn't want to hang them so I unscrewed the hooks to remove the twine hangers.



Unlike the One Kings Lane version, I wanted to keep the legs and feet unpainted so I used masking tape to tape the legs off. 



I used a sponge brush to paint several coats of this gorgeous aqua color.


I'm thinking about adding a glossy coat to make them look a little more like the One Kings Lane version. But I really like how these turned out!

  6. Hello there my friend. I Followed you over here from Knock Off Décor, but instantly recognized your sweet face from the Thistle forum! You have a new follower, not a stalker I promise. Love the birdies and the color is just glorious. I'm thinking they need some fuschia pink glass glitter though....maybe their pedi? You know me, I'm the freak about the bling!
