Yesterday I stopped by my local thrift store, and picked up these birds for 75 cents each. I'm not sure what kind of birds these are (help?), but they looked Christmasy to me. But, the thing that makes them look less than perfect to me, is the painted on face. I liked the idea of them being all white, but for Christmas, I wanted something with a little more sparkle. I was going to cover them in glitter, but then I remembered this silver leaf kit I've been dying to try out.
I gathered my supplies, and simply followed the directions on the kit. You brush on a liquid adhesive, wait for it to be tacky to the touch, and then press on the silver leaf sheets.
