For Dad’s birthday I wanted to combine two of his favorite things: birds and zombies. Yes I said zombies! Dad’s a big Resident Evil fan, while I’m a fan of The Walking Dead on AMC. Using some outdoor paint, and popsicle sticks, I created a “bird” hideaway from all the evil zombie bugs and animals out there. The birdhouse was premade, purchased from my local Michaels. To construct the “beware” sign, I snapped popsicle sticks and glued them together to form a sign. One of my fave creations of 2012!
After work Friday I wandered around my local Dollar Tree and on a whim I went through the collection of suncatchers they had in stock. Located all the way in the back, was a rose pattern, and after checking the other racks for the design, I resorted to tearing the suncatcher from the back of the rack. Two of the paint pods appeared dry so I purchased a second one with full paint.
The paint bubbles and “shrinks” as it dries so if you purchase these kits for the kiddies you may want to help them fill in spots. You can also mix colors with this kit and luckily it can be done with a small dab of paint.
All in all I’m satisfied with the project and here’s my results:
