Last week I was at Dollar Tree and I spotted these two little birds. They were the only two I saw. I’m not sure what possessed me to pick them up and put them in my cart, because…well, let’s face it, they are hideous. They look cheap and ugly. Actually, they are quite photogenic, because they look worse in person than they do in this picture.
My original idea was to give them the look of stone, using gray primer spray paint and some dry-brushing with white and gray acrylics (similar to the technique I used on this finial).
That very afternoon I was just doing a little online browsing, and completely by accident, came across these at Ballard Designs.
Ballard’s sell for $25 for the pair. I think my $2 version is just as nice. Dollar Tree Works For Me! Visit We are THAT Family for more ideas.
I'm also linking up with Thrifty Decor Chick's Spray Paint party.
