Easter Birds!

I bought these little wooden birds a while ago because I thought they were so sweet, though at the time I had no real idea of what I'd do with them!

But Easter inspiration struck, and I decided to make a birdy Spring decoration!

I've covered them with colourful papers and hung them from a branch from my garden, using some pretty gauzy ribbon I had leftover from another project. They're now flying happily across my wall reminding me it's almost summer!

Happy Easter!


  1. Angie, these are so beautiful!

    Happy Easter :)

    Hippity Hoppity!

  2. So delicate and whimsical all at the same time...loving it!
    Have a wonderful holiday Angie,


  3. Thanks LuLu - Happy Easter to you too hon! x

    Thanks Bunny - loving the ears! x

  4. How creative and pretty!
    I often buy things and they wait for their turn to shine. I love that each bird is different, yet of the same palate.
    Sounds like a lot of fun to hop on a train and go exploring a town. Can't do that around here.

  5. They're so gorgeous Angie!! I love how you've hung them from a branch.

    Happy Easter to you too! xx

  6. Lisa I have a store of things-I'm-waiting-to-be-inspired-by! It is lovely to be able to jump on a train and get away for a day yes - one of things I love about where I live.

    Thanks Catherine, and thanks again for the feature on your blog hon! xxx

  7. These are wonderful, I love how your personal style always comes through no matter what project you're working on! Gorgeous as always- I wonder how one would look with some of your butterflies....
    Happy Easter!
