Bird Ornaments!

I have recently fallen in LOVE with a new spray paint from our friends over at Rust-Oleum!  I stumbled upon these super cute bird (maybe it’s a dove) ornaments and knew just how to revamp them!
Aren’t those sooo cute!!  You want to know what makes them even cuter??  They were in the dollar section at Michael’s!  Whoop!!  I loved them but knew the red was a bit off for my silver and blue tree.  So… Here was my solution.

I love, love the finish that it gives.  It makes your surface look almost glittered without the mess!  I sprayed both side of my birdies and after a bit of drying they were ready to go.  I just added a piece of twiner and hung them up.  I love them!

How fun are those??  You can find them at Michael’s!  I found them right by the checkout with all the $1 stuff they stock at the front… My Michael’s had LOTS.   After you get your birds go get this paint.  You will love it!

    I haven't seen that spray paint before! I'll definitely have to try it out. The doves are way cuter now!

    Just gorgeous!
    I wouldn't have wasted a second look at the original ornament sold at Michael's but the idea to spray paint is just great.
    I guess I will make a trip to Michael's and Lowe's tomorrow.
    This will make a great addition to my this year's Christmas decoration.
    thank you so much for sharing the idea.

    So cute! My dollar store also had some painted silver with glitter. I think birds are just so perfect for the holidays!
