I thought I could easily make them myself.
I made a bird but it wasn’t very easy and it didn’t turn out quite like I had in mind. I do have to say it is cuter than the original 3 for $1 birds I found at Dollar Tree.
I had to pluck the feathers off to reveal a plastic bird form that looked more like a duck body. I pulled out the bug eyes and attempted to cover the bird in burlap.
I couldn’t get it to work. So I went to plan B. I covered the bird in paper sack colored tissue paper using Mod Podge and then made the tail and wings with wire and twine.
I will show you several more views of the before and after.
Side by side.
I am undecided if I like this project or not. What do you think? Is it worth making more and burning my fingers on hot glue?
