Birds Of A Feather Thrift Store Art
Happy Monday! Holy moly you guys have blown me away with all of the comments on Blog Puberty post! I love you all and value your feedback more than you will ever know!!
If you remember last week I showed you an awesome thrift store art transformation with a vintage piece of Crewel Embroidery. I also mentioned in that post that I scored 3 pieces, so here is project dos.
I fell in love with this picture of 2 birds that are 100% made of feathers. (!)
As you can see it was in pretty rough shape (one of the birds had even fallen off of its painted perch!) But for $2.00 there was just SO much character in those little guys, I couldn’t leave them behind!
For this project you will need gold leaf, a basic mini Ribba frame ($1.99 at Ikea) and something awesome to put on it (insert birds here)
Spray spray adhesive on the back of your frame. (I used spray adhesive vs. gold leaf adhesive because it was easier and once framed the gold leaf isn’t going to be manhandled at all.) If you want your gold leaf super smooth and you are leafing a flat surface the EZ Peel leafing is AWESOME. I talk a little more about leafing here if you need more deets!
Then attach your awesome object. I used a touch of hot glue to stick my birds to the leafing.
So what do you think? Do you love the feather birds or are they not your fave?
