A recent thrift store find had me excited about making a new project. This simple wooden hook hanger was a plain rust-color when I picked it up, but I’d had this great bird printable on hand, and decided to use it to embellish the accessory!
I started with the hook, a small mirror, the printed sheet, scissors, and a little glue.
I folded the paper around the edges of the block to figure out where the corners would be. Then I snipped them a little so there wouldn’t need to be any corner folds.
Paper will of course tend to wrinkle because of the moisture in the glue, so I used a small paint bottle to roll out the bubbles and wrinkles.
I added the mirror on with a little more glue once the base dried! Exciting!
Not wanting the bare edges of the mirror to show, I picked out a few pheasant feathers to glue around the edges. I carefully overlapped the tips over the quills so they wouldn’t show.
And the finished product!
