Hi C'est Magnifique fans! Deonna here today sharing a "trash to treasure" project tutorial. I had a lot of fun upcycling a ceramic bird with patterned papers and embellishments that I had leftover from the November Kit.
Step One: Bend a twist tie into a loop and secure to the top of the bird to create a hook for hanging.
Step Two: Mix white PVA glue with water.
Step Three: Tear patterned paper into small strips and saturate with the glue solution.
Step Four: Add pieces of patterned paper to the bird until completely covered. Let Dry.
Step Five: Paint the twist tie with acrylic paint.
Step Six: Seal the bird with a clear coat of glaze.
Step Seven: Glue feathers to the tail.
Step Eight: Add twine bows to the tail.
I finished the bird with some pastel roses and hand-drawn eyes.
Thanks for stopping by today!
