Sparrow {Fall Wall} Art!

Fall is in the air today!  Woke up to a cool “58” degrees! AND since this is the weekend that we are Nesting our Front Porch………..the weather just set the perfect mood.
I just wanted to share a “little something” I put together that will be used in our fall “theme” this week.  I have a heart for the sparrow, so when I saw @ Under the Table & Dreaming Christmas ornaments and her little bird….I fell in love with this little creature. 
I just replicated her directions for the bird

I had an old frame laying around that I had sprayed heirloom white and I wanted to put my little bird inside the frame.

I cut out a piece of scrapbook paper the size of the frame opening.  { I traced the cardboard piece from the frame so that the scrap paper was the perfect size }
Sprayed it with adhesive…(I sprayed the cardboard and scrapbook paper).
Then I used a “ fall “ stencil I had bought at JoAnn’s that day using Folkart’s Vintage White acrylic paint ~ I just dabbed it on.  After it was dry I sprayed a light coat of Crystal Clear Acrylic by Krylon on the scrapbook paper and on the bird. 
I then hot glued the cardboard piece back in place.  Next – I hot glued my little friend about the word “ fall “ and Voila!

I also made a BIG bird that I will post soon ~ not sure what to do with her yet…..thinking =)
~Hope you enjoy~

Happy Fall Nesting this last “official” weekend of summer.  Looking forward to sharing our ideas and looking at everyone else’s!!

I love this idea! I really need to try to get creative more often and not let "lack of money" stop me.
