First I would like to say "Congratulations!" to Shannon of Luvinthemommyhood on the recent birth of her baby! Although I'm sure that sleep deprived blog posts may prove to be somewhat entertaining, Shannon decided to invite some of her favorite bloggers to join in a "New Mommy/ New Baby" tutorial theme and I'm very flattered to be one of those bloggers! So welcome Luvinthemommyhood readers! I hope you find something fun here at MaryJanes and Galoshes.
While shopping for some fun things to improve at the Dollar Tree I came across this irresistible little bird Canvas.
What you need-
$1 Bird Canvas from Dollar Tree
Paper Streamer in color of choice
Scrap paper, small piece for hat
Pom Pom Ball
Hot glue gun
Scrap of lace
First cut a triangle for the hat and about a 6 inch strip of streamer. Fold your streamer in half the long way so it's half the width then scrunch it up accordion style and give it a haircut so it's only about half that tall.
Hot Glue this down one side of your canvas. Trim the edges flush with the top and bottom of the canvas. Now for the glitter! I used Martha Stewart's "Onyx" glitter. On a piece of card stock with a black pen I wrote out the word "chirp" then traced with glue and glittered.
