Nesting Bluebird ornament

I have had this sweet two inch bit of wood where a branch came out for AGES. A friend has an entirely bird-themed tree this year so I made this for her and will give it to her tomorrow

Pen and ink with light acrylic paint wash.

Nesting material is finely cut crabgrass ‘flower’

Oh, and that nail polish shiny eye thing I am addicted to!

thanks for looking and happy holidays!

LOVE love love! I keep little bits of wood, too. The pitchy bits that don’t rot away we call “unicorn horns” your ornament is fabulous.

This is so cute and nice use of materials! I feel the urge to go hunt for wood scraps in the woods.
