My grandma gave me this gorgeous vintage doily tablecloth.
These cute little birds "help" me to display it proudly on my wall.
While I cannot give you grandma's beautiful doily, I can share
with you how to make the bird silhouettes.
You will need cotton scraps, fabric scissors, an iron, and Stiffen Quik spray.
If you are a perfectionist like me, you might want to start by cutting your desired bird shape
from a piece of scrap paper. I just googled flying bird images, and used them as a guide
for my bird shapes.
Next, spray the fabric thoroughly with the stiffener per the instructions on the bottle.
Once the fabric has completely dried and is stiff, use the paper cutout as a guide
to cut your bird from the fabric.
You are almost finished!
Now, using a hot iron with NO STEAM on the cotton setting, simply iron the bird right to the wall.
Just press the hot iron over top of the fabric for about 6 seconds.
Really. That's it!
This will not harm your paint at all, and they will peel right off
no problem when you are done or want to move them.
Now cut out a whole flock and set them free across your wall!
Don't forget to use your leftover scraps for fun little surprises in any room!
P.S. Here is a little trick I used...
If you want a bird in a place where your cord doesn't let you reach,
just warm the iron and then unplug it and quickly iron that bird up.
No need to dig out the extension cord!
