Hello there, and happy Monday! 🙂
Have you ever heard the adage, “You can’t keep the birds from flying over your head, but you can keep them from building a nest in your hair”?
Well, we had an animal themed night and I had no idea what to do! So… I decided to make something that show that in a few cases (probably not in general) – you can have the birds nest in your hair and make it cute!
Step 1: Grab some paper. Preferably, it would be thicker to hold up better.
Step 2: Grab a headband! I liked this Grecian style because it made the birds look more legit (in their habitat).
Step 3: Fold the pages down to the sizes you want the critters to be!
Step 4: Grab a pen and doodle out a bird (or any other animal that you prefer)!
Step5: Grab scissors and away we go! Snip-snip-snip!
After cutting out the bird’s silhouette, cut a little slit into the feet area.
Step 6: Grab an adhesive (nail polish again!) and apply it to the bird’s wings, and then take some yarn to cover the area.
Step 7: Take a piece of string, paper, or yarn (whichever method is easiest) and thread it through the hole.
Step 8: Take the ends and wrap them around the headband to fasten!
I thought it would look cuter with some yarn covering the paper, and so created mini “nests” with the yarn.
And you’re done! Please excuse the extra dot of nail polish on the right bird. It’s a birthmark ; )
