I got my sewing machine out tonight to take in some trousers (ready for the Book Club Christmas 'do' next week) but ended up using it as a drying rack for these little birds. I bought blank wooden birds from ebay and used gift wrap to decoupage them. I then added some glass beads. Once dry I will give them a coat of varnish then they'll be good to go. I plan to pop some in with Christmas presents and keep a couple to hang on my dresser.
