Ripoff Artist...To Shell And Back

Several weeks ago, someone {sorry, hunted but couldn't find the link} did a
post for Show And Tell Friday about their vintage seashell birdies and I was
smitten...smote...smintrigued!

I always have a ton {or two} of shell on hand for sudden inspirations or cat
toys...so I got to work!{can you see that Cocoa Krispie in that shell? I wondered
where they all landed after the sudden explosion and shower of Cocoa Krispies...
you have to be Xena to open those darn cereal bags! Sheesh!}



They were so easy to make! Yes, I know the faces need some work...
they look like koala birds! I'll work on that!




I made this little guy a perch out of a wonky starfish.




This is my fave! Mr. Bluebird! I had to tone down the color in this shot...
one day I will grasp how to capture the sparkliness of glitter...but I haven't
yet!




They are a happy little family! I'm thinking about suspending some from ribbon
as Christmas ornaments...they would look so cute all over my feather tree!




Be sure to visit Cindy {a wish her a Happy Birthday!} for more

  9. They are adorable. I think a batch of glittered (gasp) pastel ones (lite green, pink, blue, etc.) would be stunning on your feather tree!!! LOVE the blue one on the spool. Just too tweet for words ;)
