There are so many ways you can make this little nesting bird ornament and even MORE ways to decorate them! Enjoy!
2. With a flat brush, paint the pots with Liquid Leaf in Classic Gold, Silver Leaf OR Metallic Gold/Silver Acrylic paints. The Acrylic paints are less than $2.00 per bottle.
3. If you decide to place glitter on the rim of the pot, paint a fairly generous amount of Elmer’s Craft Bond glue OR Aleene's Fast Grab Tacky Glue on the rim of the pot. Make sure you don’t forget the front part of the rim as well. I used the Martha Stewart ultra- fine glitter.
4. After the pots have dried thoroughly, spray a coat of Clear Gloss Acrylic spray. This will prevent any nicks in the paint that may occur over time. You can also use Mod Podge Gloss over the acrylic paint.
5. At this point, you will need to string organza ribbon through your pot and tie in a pretty bow at the top of the pot’s rim. Michael’s sells pots that already have drainage holes in them, so you won’t need to drill anything.
6. If you have decided to glue flat back rhinestones on the rim, use Aleene's Glass and Bead glue OR E-6000 to attach the rhinestones to the lip of the pot. I would highly recommend allowing the rhinestones to set for at least 24 hours.
7. Using your low temp hot glue gun, glue a little Spanish Moss inside, and perch your little feathered friend on top. I snipped my moss into smaller pieces, however, this step is not required.
8. Lastly, string and tie gold ornament thread under the ribbon and you have a sweet little ornament. You may also want to add a couple of snowflake stickers to the pot, however, this is up to you. You now have a sweet little bird ornament!
