Waiting (IM)patiently for the new stock of birds to arrive at Dollar Tree
I KNOW they have had some kind of new style of resin birds in stock every year. I THOUGHT the new stock would arrive sometime in March, apparently not. I don’t remember exactly WHEN I bought them in the past, but it seemed like early springtime. Maybe after the Easter stock is gone they will bring in the birds. In the meantime, I gave these ceramic doves a make over.
They’ve had these particular doves in stock forever it seems. For some reason, I always passed them up. I think I didn’t care for the ‘sandy’ finish on them. Repainting them and adding some Ralph Lauren glaze helped.
The birds, clear glass bowl vases, clear small plates and Spanish moss all came from DT. I could/would have bought the candle holder base there too, except that I had a case of others I’d bought for less at a rummage sale. The eggs were the little wood ornament eggs. I removed the string for hanging them, and painted them.
I work a handful of the moss into a nest shape and GLUE the egg in the center. (those eggs tend to disappear if they’re not glued down!
Use e6000 for gluing the bird to the globe and the candle holder to the bottom of the plate.
