Little Birdie in a Frame

Remember when I said I would explain how I made some of the new wall art in this pic?
Well today is the day. I’m going to show you how I made the little birdie in the frame. It’s about as easy as they come.
Mike found an old frame when he was helping his dad clear some stuff out of their house and thoughtfully brought it home for me. I decided to spray it a glossy gray to echo our new gray slipcover.
Then I had to come up with something to fill it with. I used some scrap gray fabric from the slipcover to make a little branch. I just cut a strip the same width as the frame and adhered it with a glue dot. Then I cut two smaller strips to make little branches and glue dotted those guys as well.
Lastly, I just took some scrap fabric from the placemats I made awhile back and made a cute little birdie. I traced a bird (from my computer) on the back side of my fabric and then folded the fabric so I could cut out both sides at once. I stuffed the bird with the rest of my scrap piece of fabric and top stitched the little guy closed.
After hanging the frame where I wanted it on the wall, I took two more glue dots and stuck the birdie to the wall.
Ta-da! Free wall art. This is probably one of the easiest “art projects” I have done. You can literally frame anything.
