Colorful Decoupage Bird

By:

Celebrate spring with some decorative paper crafts. A Colorful Decoupage Bird by Tiffany Windsor is a fun and adorable edition to a mantel, desk or tabletop. This little guy is shockingly simple to make - all you need is scrapbook paper and a plain wooden bird.


 

Materials:

  • Aleene’s Decoupage – Matte
  • Wood bird
  • Scrapbook paper (colors and designs of your choice)
  • Acrylic paint (color of choice to coordinate with scrapbook paper)
  • Brush (for paint and decoupage)
  • Pencil
  • Scissors
  • Rubber stamp (sentiment of your choice)
  • Staz-On Ink – Jet Black

Instructions:

  1. Paint bird front back and sides. Let dry completely.
     
  2. Lay bird face down on back of scrapbook paper. Use pencil to trace around design. Hint: If you hang the bird feet off the edge of the paper, the wood portion will lay flat on the scrapbook paper to make tracing easier. Cut along pattern line.
     
  3. To create wing pattern, lay bird face down on back of coordinating paper and trace around lightly. Draw wing pattern to coordinate with wing tip on bird. (Hint: the wing is a large comma pattern.) Cut along pattern line. Stamp sentiment on wing.
     
  4. Turn bird over and repeat steps to create designs for back of bird. Have fun and change out the colors and patterns!
     
  5. Apply decoupage medium to bird. Apply decoupage medium to back of paper bird pattern. Lay onto wood bird. Brush over paper with decoupage medium. Use fingers to gently rub out any bubbles.
     
  6. Glue wings in place with decoupage medium. Smooth final coat of decoupage with brush. Let dry.
