DIY Bird Ornaments for the Christmas Tree

I wanted to do some new ornaments this year. I set out to make something with a “tattered vintage” look. I had so much fun making Christmas stockings out of burlap and cotton that I wanted to do some ornaments with the same sort of feel.

I’ve never really done much designing of my own crafts. I’m more of a “copier”. But, I’ve been trying to stretch myself a bit and do some original things.

Let me tell you…I’m a very slow designer…

My first try at a bird ornament ended up looking like a 1st Graders art project!…

In the end, this is what they turned out like:

They are made out of damask, burlap, canvas, and different “accessories”. {“Accessorizing” them is my favourite part!}

I’ll be back tomorrow to give you a quick little tutorial on them…
