Today I'll share with you another DIY idea using die-cut paper feathers, kindly sponsored by Kindall Krafts).
I had an empty glass jar of Robert Timms Coffee. The hubby and I are both coffee drinkers, so we finished the coffee in no time :) When I saw the jar I knew that I could make something creative with it.
An empty Robert Timms Coffee glass jar (don't worry the label is very easy to take off)
Floral foam brick
Kindall Krafts die-cut paper feathers (see here to see how to create an easy DIY hand-stamp)
Small bird figurine
To make the hello bubble speech shape
I'm soo sorry I didn't take a photo of the step by step instructions as I got too excited and carried away (again) ... Please feel free to ask me any questions if you're confused about the how to.
1. Cut a small piece of the floral foam brick and super glued it to the lid.
I also made sure that I could still open the jar when i was working out how big the floral foam needed to be, before gluing it down.
Note: we will turn the jar upside down so it's like a dome.
2. Place your bird figurine on the floral foam first and foremost, to ensure that you have enough space for it. You can build the paper feathers around it.
I got my figurine at a sea shells shop during one of our holidays and i absolutely loved it. They made the bird out of seashells. Can you believe it?! Very creative indeed. I painted the head with gold paint to make it a little more glam :)
3. Attach a tooth pick onto the back of each feather using sticky tape (It's easier than using glue). I made my feather double sided, simply by attaching another feather on the back using double sided tape. So the toothpick is sandwiched between 2 feathers. If you know what i mean ..
4. Simply insert the tooth-picked feathers on the floral foam.
The rest is up to your creativity...
I put an extra floral foam to add a bit of height for some of the feathers. I combined plain and patterned feathers so it looks more interesting. I also cut up a bubble speech shape out of plain white paper and write "hello" with sharpie. Then attached it using double sided tape.
.. and it's done.. Little birdie, now I can display and admire you better :)
