Beaded Birds

 




 A few years ago I made some small stuffed birds out of wool and denim fabrics.  I intended them to be ornaments for a tree, but I thought they looked a little drab after getting them done, so they've sat in a bin for a few years.


I recently decided that what these birds needed was some bling. So I pulled out my beads and started sewing them on.








This is what the new jazzed up birds look like:








I don't know about you, but I like the "blinged" birds much better. I took off the tree hangar and intend to just set them on a box or something. Maybe a box like this:












Here's the bird on the box:



I would paint the box, of course!  Now to finish beading the rest of them.....

Thanks for visiting my blog!
