Free Craft Projects - Glitter Birds

 

This lovely glitter bird craft project was kindly contributed by: Cartwright's Sequins & Vintage Buttons. Please email Cartwright's with any questions regarding this project.

Turn a plain craft bird into a glitter bird. Great for wreaths, floral arrangements and as Christmas tree ornaments.

What you need: * A bird (a fake one of course!) * Craft glue, such as Mod Podge or Sobo (available at Wal-Mart or craft stores) * A paint brush for applying the glue * A safe place for your birdie to dry, such as a piece of craft or floral foam * A piece of paper or waxed paper to catch your excess glitter for re-use * A clear spray sealer if desired * Glitter!

What to do: 1. Make sure your birdie is clean and dust free. 2. Dip your brush into the glue, and paint on the bird wherever you want the glitter to be. 3. Sprinkle glitter over the glue. 4. Tap gently on paper or waxed paper to remove excess 5. Place your birdie somewhere safe to dry for a few minutes. (Poke the wire attached to the bird's feet into floral or craft foam to hold the bird upright while drying.) If you are using two colors like we've done above, it's best to let the first color dry completely, so that you do not contaminate your next glitter color when you shake off the excess. 6. Pour your excess glitter back into your jar for re-use 7. If you've used enough glue, a sealer may not be necessary. But just in case, it's always good to spray a light coating of clear sealer onto your finished bird. 8. Let dry completely, and enjoy! 9. Oh yeah, dont forget to wash your brush so you can re-use it!) If you are using opaque glitter, the color of bird does not matter. If you are using a transparent glitter, you would want to choose a complimentary-colored bird for your glitter.
