Vintage Bird Planters

Last week I found these cute little ceramic birds marked down to $1.25 at Michael's. There were four left so I bought them all. This morning I put together these two planters as gifts. They had brown clay pots at the hardware store, just the right color. I brought them home and using rubber stamps and cream colored acrylic paint, I stamped a script and an angel  motif onto the pots and trays. Next I made a polymer base and put polymer roses around it's edge. Last I hot glued the ceramic bird and centered it into the succulents that I planted while the polymer was baking. This was a fast and easy project that gives a lot of bang for your buck.  


  1. Very nice. One can't go too wrong at Michael's. I have to drive a long way to get to mine so when I go it is a shopping spree.
    Oh and I love your cover.
