Tweet Birdcage: Michaels/Hometalk Pinterest Party!

What's that?! A PARTY!? That's right, y'all! A Hometalk/Michaels NATIONWIDE PINTEREST party, nonetheless! And guess who is going to be there as the featured blogger?! ME! Woohoo!!! I will be at the Flanders/Mt. Olive, NJ Michaels on February 16th from 1-4 all ready to craft the hours away with YOU! (Unless you live far away in which case you should check out the local bloggers that might be near you in YOUR Michaels!)

Here is my take on one of Michaels' awesome 5 Pinterest endcap projects, featuring their awesome birdcage and great wooden cut outs!


-1 Ashland Garden Collection Birdcage (Medium size)
-1 bag of Dyed Spanish Moss (you won't need the whole bag)
-1 ArtMinds Wood Plaque
-1 Simply Surfaces Wooden Laser Cut Bird (my FAV)
-1 Mini Wooden Chalkboard
-1 Page of Scrapbook paper from The Garden Tea Party Stack DCWV
-Mod Podge and brushes
-Decoart Paint in Soft Heather and Glamour Dust in Celebration Pink
-Some burlap and wire ribbon

I started by wrapping the burlap around the birdcage and putting some of the moss in it, then wrapped the ribbon around it tying it off in a box bow.  Next, I cut the paper to fit the plaque by tracing it on the opposite side with a pencil.  I Mod Podged the paper onto the plaque and painted the edges of the plaque with the soft pink, then the glamour dust to match the paper.  I also painted the bird to match.

I then hot glued the bird and the chalkboard to the plaque and placed it inside the birdcage.

 I think the birdie looks so sweet inside there!
 Of course, a sweet song bird belongs inside this sweet cage! ;) Get it? I'm witty. Or at least I think I am.
Anyway, I truly hope you will join me on Sunday the 16th at 1pm at the Flanders/Mt. Olive Michaels location to craft the afternoon away! It will be a BLAST! By the way, the cost of all of the supplies for my sweet project, under $15! Make sure you take full advantage of their coupons online and their 40% sale off most of the endcap items!

OH! And to make it even more awesome you can enter to win a $100 gift card by simply joining Hometalk and following Michaels! You can follow me too, just for fun! ;)

I can't wait to meet you in person! WOOHOO!
