Bird Ornaments

 While I was making my Bird wall hanging I thought it would be fun to make some little bird ornaments. 

 I practiced a bit of what I call "dirty sewing" where you don't really follow the rules or do things "professionally". I knew these were for me, in my house, and I have no plans of washing these things or even having them be heavily used. So with that in mind I just took two birds that face opposite directions, put them on top of each other with a bird shaped piece of scrap paper in between, placed the ribbon on top and zig-zagged around the edge. 

 I like the way they look, a little primitive maybe, but I like that. I then placed them on this metal rack thingy I got from goodwill years ago. I think it is meant for coffee mugs, I bought it thinking I could put jewelry on it or maybe hang my scissors on it. I did hang my scissors on it for a while but I found it just didn't really work that well. 

But my birds look awesome on it so it all worked out in the end.
