Bird and Burlap Wreath


I have some coffee sacks and I really wanted to make a wreath. I had seen a little bird made from yarn, crumpled paper and small beads.

I cut the coffee sacks in strips. I had a polystyrene wreath. So I hot glued the burlap around the wreath.

I had some pine cones which I cut the tops off, painted them with acrylic paint put craft glue in spots and shook glitter on.

I saw this little bird made from yarn on a site a few weeks ago. I can't remember which site it was on , but I'm sure any other crafty people have probably seen it.
It is really simple to make. I think if I had another pair of hands, well not just hands, I would prefer a person attached to the aforesaid hands.
Anyway it would be easier and better looking if someone was holding the yarn as you wrap it around.

I had a wide brimmed sun hat, the brim was too wide so I cut some of it off.
I really like the material it is made from.
So I wrapped that around the wreath too. I glued the little bird. Then I got a small piece of wood and drilled two small holes in it for string.

I have now hung it on my front door. I really like it.
Not many homes in Ireland have wreaths on the door unless it is Christmas time.
So far I've had one for Halloween, Christmas, Easter and now Summer.
