Birds On A Wire

I've had this gorgeous black frame with no glass for a long time, and I finally thought of something to do with it! My dining room wall has a bird theme, and as I was about to clip the hanging wire off this frame, I thought "Hey, it kind of looks like a telephone wire! Just needs birds!"

You could apply this concept with just about anything to make any kind of picture, but I used twigs from my yard (some with "bonus" dying leaves! Sweet!), and scrapbooking paper for birds and pumpkins. It almost feels a little "Alfred Hitchcock", but the rest of the pictures on that wall tone it down.

You can just barely see the little pumpkins at the bottom!
These are just some feathers that were lying around my house in various places with pretty papers behind them.
And this is a little bird cut-out collage in my favorite frame. It's huge! This frame has no glass either, so the birds (which I made by cutting around some pictures printed online) are just stuck to the actual wall with sticky-tack. And I kinda like it that way!

A close up of some of the birdies!
My living/dining area is almost done, so I'll have some pictures up soon!

Take care everyone! And don't forget to sign up for the giveaway! (See post below)
