original it is, but it was easy and
relatively inexpensive. (Terri)
Miniature Birdbath -
You'll need several 3" or 4" terra
cotta pots and saucers; assorted colors
of craft paint; brushes; a kitchen sponge
cut into about 1" squares. Small decorative
birds, tiny satin roses or other mini
flowers and moss. Also a hot glue
gun and plenty of glue sticks.
Base coat the pots and saucers a color
of choice, let dry. Then sponge paint
(a little or a lot) over that.
Glue the saucer's bottom side to the
pot's bottom side (does that make sense?)
so you have a birdbath. Paint the inside
of the saucer blue and let dry. Now
squeeze a lot of hot glue into the saucer
- about a good half inch but no more
than that. Let set. Glue on the
moss around the bottom of the birdbath,
fix on some flowers. Glue the bird to
the rim of the birdbath, or set him
in the "water"
What you need: Coffee filters, cotton
balls, pipe cleaners (white and green)
water paint, green crepe paper, or green
construction paper. (Wendy)
Place the cotton ball in the center
of the coffee filter. Gather the coffee
filter around the cotton ball and use
the white pipe cleaner to keep it gathered.
Puff out the coffee filter and flatten.
Use 1/2 of the green pipe cleaner to
make the stem by hooking it in the back
of the flower where the cotton ball
hole is. Use the water paint to lightly
paint some color onto the flower. Last
make the leaves for the flower with
the green crepe paper or construction

sticks on top of it. break one popsicle
stick in half and use for the bottom
of the basket under the 7. Glue these
in place, to form the basket. Glue one
more popsicle stick on the top of the
other side of the basket. Use the ribbon
to weave in and out of the fan like
area of the basket from the bottom to
the top, filling the gaps in. Use the
green felt and either cut in a zigzag
way or use fancy scissors to make the
green felt look like grass for the bottom
of the basket. Glue in place around
both sides. Make a bow with the ribbon
to place in the middle of the top of
the basket. Attach the pipe cleaner,
for the handle, in between the
basket top slats on each side with glue.
Cut the white foam into a rectangle
and make the Happy Easter sign to hang
down from the middle of the top handle
of the basket and tie on with the string.
Little chick: Little yellow pompom and
real small yellow pompom glue together

orange beak and glue onto the head and
use the black marker for the eyes. Glue
onto the left, top side of the basket

of white foam to look like two ears
