Birds seem to be the crafting trend that will never die – and I’m okay with it. I love birds! If you have ever seen the show Portlandia, you might also be familiar with the “Put a Bird On It” video. It completely epitomizes the bird trend in a humorous way. To celebrate “putting a bird on it,” I’ve put together a cute collection of bird inspired projects . . . definitely made better with the addition of a winged creature. I just love these bird canvases from Under the Sycamore. Putting a bird on something truly makes it better! To see the Portlandia video as well as other bird craft projects, click through the jump.
