When Barb at The Everyday Home first proposed this Dollar Store Challenge, I said, “Yes, ma’am!”
I may not have been thrilled with a candlestick, initially, but I decided to do something that wasn’t candlestick-y.
I used freezer paper to make a pattern, tracing around a bowl and a mug.
…added a tail, then ironed it onto fabric. I decided to use the wrong side of the fabric as the outside, with the right side of the fabric for wings.
I added a little triangular piece to make the bird rounder.
A gold felt diamond becomes a beak, and two little black buttons are sewn on for eyes. A piece of lace was sewn around the neck, and two wings were hot glued to the body.
A Chobani yogurt cup
was cut down
and hot-glued to the candlestick.
A hole was cut in the center, so that
the bird could be glued in securely.
Spanish moss was glued along the base of the yogurt cup, and trimmed to look like a nest.
Worms not included!
