Love Birds


"Love Birds" are the latest creation for the seasonal ornament hanger.
I harassed Nicole enough to cut me out some lovely birds. These are decorated with puffy glitter stickers, rhinestones for eyes, and Dr. Pepper cans!
Nicole came up with a brilliant idea when she made her "Be Mine" letters last month.  She cut up her Dr. Pepper cans and made cute little hearts to decorate her letters.  It's the perfect "heart" color and adds a  different texture!  I guess when you drink enough Dr. Pepper and stare at the can long enough, you eventually become inspired to create something with it! :)
They look so cute on her letters! 
These are the plain little birds Nicole cut. Have I told you what an incredible "wood cutter" Nicole is? Her cuts are so precise! If I cut them I would be in the garage for hours, struggling to form a bird.
They are so pretty just in silver.
I picked up a few stickers at the craft store.
And these funny little hearts. I ripped the ribbons out and replaced them with wire.
I spliced open the Dr. Pepper can. It's really sharp, so if you try this...be careful!
I didn't waste a bit, because if you flip it over the silver works great too.
I traced the heart with a pencil and cut with sharp scissors.
Baby likes it too!
