This DIY Burlap Bird Ornaments by Me Making Do ( are Ballard Designs knock-offs.

The Howto
    As this blog is no longer active, let me summerize how to make these wonderful bird ornaments:

  • Cut 2 bird silhouette shapes, sew them together and fill. Tip: don’t overstuff!
  • To create ornaments out if these birds, it’s best to add a piece of string on the top/back of the bird in-between the two layers of fabric and sew them all together.
  • With craft wire, create feathers for wings and tail.
  • Wrap these with rope so you can’t see the wires any longer. Stick wire into birds.
  • Attach further rope detailing with glue and a few stitches.
  • Make face with a black marker or black embroidery floss.

Fun and easy.
