(Hooray for alliteration!)

In a fit of cabin fever, I made these birds a few weeks ago during one of the snowstorms that walloped the east coast.  They were pretty easy to make, the hardest part was waiting for the glue to dry in between layers, but it was worth it to have something bright, cheerful, and reminiscent of spring perched in my kitchen even though it was cold and gray outside. I took pictures of the process and posted a tutorial on my brand new and already neglected blog: http://tengocrafty.blogspot.com/2010/03/paper-mache-peeps.html.  =D

I know they look pretty rough (it's my first time doing paper mache since middle school!), but I think I like that.

These are utterly charming.  I like that they're so uneven.  I would put these anywhere in my house!

I don't care, I'm still free; you can't take the sky from me.

I agree!  I like the rustic folkish look to these as well!  Great job!
