It feels like for-ev-er since I’ve posted a craft! That doesnt mean I havent been crafty though. Well maybe a little less crafty then normal. I had to put all my crafty things in boxes and move them and they are just now coming out to play. One of the first things that I pulled out of hiding was this little wooden birdie from Michaels.
This little guy started out like most of my projects – without a plan. Once I found this adhesive cork board I knew it was meant to be with my birdie. I grabbed my scissors and got to work.
I say work like it was hard. Place bird on sticky side, cut out bird shape and trim. I did add some hot glue to make sure it stayed in place. So that was kinda work.
Confession – I didnt know what to do with my little birdie once I had him [or her? I cant tell.] all corked. I thought about using him [or her?] as a normal cork board with thumb tacks and little notes.. but that made me sad. I didnt want to cover her [or him] with notes and tacks. Sounded inhumane. And yes I realize its a piece of wood.
Im sure you can see Im using it as a needle holder. [Go ahead.. laugh.] I didnt know what else to do with him [or her] and needed a place to put my needle where I wouldnt forget it. And where little fingers couldnt find it. So maybe I should call him [or her] ‘my little forget me not birdie’. Sounds humane to me.

What an adorable idea! I love him/her just as he/she is… perhaps stencil a word or small quote that means something sentimental to you… and just leave the little birdie as ART!
that is one creative use for the bird! you culd use a pin to stick a note or reminder…

What an adorable little birdie. Just as cute covered in cork. I wonder if there is a PETA forum for wooden animals?

How cute. I love that you didn't want to cover it up

Love this. I work for a jewelry company and the logo is birds. This will be perfect for my trunk shows! Thanks for sharing.
You can have a whole menagerie of pin cushions! Very cute idea.
