Happy Tuesday guys!!
I want to share a fun wall art project with you guys! I made these for the older girls' room but I think I may be making some more for mine as well... I love them.
I have 2 blank spaces next to their window that were begging for some love. I found the branches and birds and that became my inspiration for this project.
I started with some scrap 1x12 I had from some of my latest projects. These were about 24" long.
I'm kind of into stain at the moment so that's just what I did... Dark Mahogany.
While those were drying I started working on the cute stuff.
I used my Silhouette to cut shapes out. I found the birds and branches on the Silhouette software and cut it out using the machine. There is nothing better than shopping from the comfort of my computer chair.
I used Silhouette's Premium Vinyl for these birdies and branches.
Once the machine cut it, I peeled the extras off first.
Then, I used the transfer paper to attach it to my wood. This is my first time to use the transfer paper and I LOVE it. I usually try the old peel and stick method but I knew that wouldn't work with all the details.
You just peel the transfer paper off.... So easy!
I had originally planned on being done at this point but I thought it needed a little extra something. I remembered some cream flowers I had from making the baby some headbands.
Pulled out the glue gun...
And started attaching.
I had to cover up my holes so I used some extra pearly buttons and hot glued them too.
I found these great hooks in the garden section at Hobby Lobby for 1/2 off... Whoop!
I drilled a couple holes in each one, added some twine, and hung them up.... Well, actually I only got one up.
The babies were not enjoying this project as much as I was. I did manage to get one up to show you though :-)
Hope you like it!
