thrifty bird bottle stopper

Friday, 10 August 2012

i painted a bird ornament that i got from a thrift store with white spray paint, then i got a glass stopper from another bottle i had laying around, a cork will do if you don't have one. i used super glue to stick it to the bottom of the bird, that's all it took, then i put it in the top of a large wide bottle i also got in a thrift store but an old whisky bottle would look good. you could also decorate the front of the bottle.
