I am always up for a challenge…but $5 seems like a lot of money. LOL! I am linking up with Lindsay’s $5 Challenge.


I must admit this idea was totally stolen from about 7000 blogs featuring these little beauties from the Dollar Tree. But “imitation is the highest form of flattery,” right?

A little white spray paint never hurt a bird right?

Remember my homemade cloche? Well one of these birdies made its way inside of it. I added a little Spanish moss from the Dollar Tree and WAHLAAAAA!


I thought the birdie needed something to do all locked up in the cloche. So I figured sitting on some eggs would keep her busy.

So I ate a handful and gave her a few. 🙂

  1. This is the first time I have visited your blog. I found you through $5 Challenge. You have a great blog. I have added you as a favorite. I’ll be back. Thanks for sharing your cute little birds.

  2. Such a good idea! I need to go the dollar store. Now just to wait and see how long until her eggs are gone and “hatched”. 🙂

  3. Wow, very cute. I wanted to tell you that I’ve implemented your ‘nag board’ in our house and it works like a dream! Hubby has actually really taken to it! I feel so calm and non-frustrated now. Are u a genius?

  4. I would never have thought to paint the birds white – they look much more classy and expensive than Dollar store finds.

  5. Super cute. What a great way to change those cheesy (sorry if anyone out there is in love with them) dollar store figures into something cute. It’s amazing the stuff I would never think to do… super cute though. I agree, makes them look a lot fancier and more expensive. (Might have to do this.) : )

  6. So cute. Don’t you just love spray paint? I spray painted a bunny recently! Does wonders!!:)
    Thanks for the idea. I’m going to pick up a few birds today at the dollar store.
