Bird Bowl Tower

The website Trash 2 Treasure is my new obsession. She has so many cute things in her store. After one of my many trips to this website, I found something I had to make. So on one of my many DI trips, I picked up everything I needed: a bottom piece, a middle piece and a bowl- all out of wood. First thing first I used my E-6000 glue to glue all the pieces together like so: and let the glue dry overnight. Then I sanded all the pieces. Picked the color of paint I wanted (Americana brand Bahama Blue.) I first painted the wood white to prime it. Then I painted it my blue color. I then sanded some areas and rubbed walnut stain all over to give it an aged look. Finally I was able to add some moss, a little birdie and three little eggs that are actually gum...


So cute, If I may say so myself...

WAY cute! I also liked your apothecary jars you made--very awesome. Do you like that E6000 glue? My mom has started recommending it for every thing I need glueing--she just discovered it and I get lots of broken things that need glueing. (Did I spell that right?)
