MORE Dollar Tree birds!
Usually I just paint and add crowns to the DT birds.
This is what the birds looked like when I bought them. Sometimes I spray paint them, but they ARE very easy to hand paint with acrylic craft paints too. (and just leave the feet black)
I decided they would look cute perched atop some little gift boxes.
The gift boxes came from DT also; just some time ago. I’m not sure they have the white satin ones like this anymore.
I tea stained the boxes and lids.
Once dry I added a new piece of card stock to cover the bottom, left ‘bare’ when I removed the sticker.
I made some crepe paper rosettes that I rimmed with gold glitter. Pulled the bow off the top of the box.
Put a nice big blog of tacky glue in the center of the box top where I wanted my bird to stand, added my bird, then added the bow on TOP of the birds feet. I held it in place with a rubber band while the glue dried.
And I added a blank kraft tag.
Gifts are SO much nicer when presented in a pretty keepsake gift box!
