Dollar Store Blue Birds

I was a the dollar store the other day and came across these little beauties.

I think they actually looked worse in person than they do in the picture. The reddish dots are some kind of sand. That said I liked their shape. So when I got home I grabbed a paper towel, some blue craft paint, and got to work. I just dabbed the paint on with the paper towel and then rubbed the wing to take off a little paint and there you have it...

Cute little blue birds. They are a little brighter in the picture, but they are just the right pop of color in our family room.

  1. Those are so cute! You definitely improved them. I love them! They remind me of The Bluebird Cafe in Logan (on Main). One of my favorite old, candy shoppes/soda fountains and lunch places. My worked there in high school.
