Thing I DON'T usually share....

I don't share patterns of my crafts...but technically this one isn't MY very own since my Auntie K saw one in a store, and had to make them for Mother's Day!   So first I doodle the idea... I always laugh when I look at my drawings or look at the wood after I doodle on it...it's rather freaky and I'm always surprised how cute they turn out with my NOT so good drawing skills....

The Birdie is about 11" in circumference.  If you want your circle to be perfect you can trace a bowl, but I like the raw, rough, not so perfect look.
I used scraps of bead board for the Beek and Feet
I used 1/4 inch plywood for everything else (donated by Uncle Marty..thanks to Auntie Kris)

Get out your paints and pick what colors you want to do...and Paint away! Thanks for help from my Baby Lily!

Sand... sand.... sand....

 Glue peices together and let set and then use your staple gun or your nail gun to make sure it's secure. Then you're going to drill holes in the feet and the bottom of the Little Birdie to add the dangly feet!

VA-WA-LAAA
