How to make patterned birdies to decorate your wall.

ελληνικό κείμενο


 My wall in the dining room needed some color, so I decided to make some patterned birdies to decorate it.

I started by drawing on paper the bird parts, a branch and two leaves.





I chose some colorful papers with various patterns.



I cut the colorful papers using the bird drawings as patterns. I used different paper for every part of the birds, the branch and the leaves.



I also cut the bird patterns on cardboard, the kind architects use to make models. It comes in various thicnesses and you can choose the one you like.





I glued the patterned papers on the right place on the cardboard. Ideally if you want to hang your birds in a wall colored other than white, before glueing the patterned papers on the cardboard,  you should paint the edge of the cardboard birds with the color you used for your wall, or at least a similar color, they will look better.

I used buttons as eyes and I glued the birds on the wall using blue tack.

το ξέρω μωρέ...απλά είπα μήπως είχες να προτείνεις κάποιο site που να ταλαιπωρεί λιγότερο τα ματάκια μου...:(

Tina said...

Θα ψάξω να βρω από που τα είχα πάρει και θα σου δώσω το link. Δυστυχώς αυτή τη στιγμή έχω πρόβλημα και δεν μπορώ να κάνω sign in στο etsy να δω τις παλιές μου αγορές, ελπίζω να το λύσω σύντομα.
