Have you seen these birds at Dollar Tree?
They really are cute just the way they are...
But I wanted to change them up.
So why not turn the into mercury glass birds?
First step, we gave each bird a base coat of Precious Metals but really you could use regular silver craft paint.
And then we laid on the silver leafing (I had this left over from when we guilded gourds.)
And here they are done..
I don't think anyone would ever think they came from Dollar Tree!
