I’ve made so many bird ornaments over the last 2 months. It’s one of my most favorite things to do.
These were made out of wood slices from the Christmas tree lot. I was digging through a bin looking for good ones and the guy working there pulled over a huge trash can for me to dig through. It was so great. I left with a big bag, but have only painted these six.
The prep for them is a big pain, but the painting part is oh, so much fun! I coated them with encaustic wax and added some rustic wire.
I gave them as gifts to friends and teachers. The owl one we kept, of course.
I also made 10 little owl ornaments and 6 new birds, but I forgot to take pictures. These three were all I
have had left. I sold most of them and gave a few away.
I hope to make more.
What a great idea! wish I could find some wood slices. Nobody uses real trees for Xmas trees in SA unfortunately.
i love your bird ornaments – they are all gorgeous!
