Little Birdie Wall Hangings (plus free template)

Chloe’s little nursery has been a work in process. I’m not sure why it has taken so long….nothing in there has been very time consuming.  It has just been a matter of finishing up a few small details up. 


And the latest addition came from seeing an image on Pinterest but when I followed the Pin, it was a dead end.  Does that really bug anyone else? Haha!  Anyway, the concept wasn’t too tough, so I just made something similar. 


And now Chloe has some simple little birdies……perched above her crib.




They sit alone on the wall above her crib but I love the simplicity.




The birdies are made from fabric and a button eye.  And are attached to little 6 inch canvases.  Oh, and did I mention that this is like a 20 minute project?  Quickie-quick!




Ooooh, they’re cute.  See?




I used Mod Podge to attach them to each canvas, so those little suckers are not coming off. ;)




Ahhh, looking cuter already.  All I need now, is a sweet little crib skirt.  (Don’t worry, it’s already half made!)



Want to make some little birdies of your own?


Supplies Needed:

  • Template found, HERE.  (scroll down…’s at the bottom)
  • 6 inch canvas
  • scrap pieces of fabric
  • Mod Podge
  • button for eye
  • acrylic paint (for the legs)
  • thin paint brush and sponge brush
  • hot glue


**Keep in mind, the template was made for a 6 inch canvas.  (Adjust if necessary.)


Cut out 1 bird body and 2 wings per canvas.  Place it on your canvas to see if you like the size.


Then, paint a layer of Mod Podge on the back side of your fabric bird.


Then place down onto the canvas and press down firmly.  Apply another coat of Mod Podge right on top.


Add the wings the same way and add a coat of Mod Podge over the entire thing, making sure to seal all the edges with Mod Podge.


Once the Mod Podge dries (or almost dries), paint some skinny little legs with your paint.


Then hot glue a button eye right onto the bird.



And that’s it.  All ready to hang.

    What type of Mod Podge did you use as there is many types. Thanks very much.

  4. Michelle says:

    These birds are adorable! I’m thinking about cutting out 2 bodies, stuffing them and using them for a little mobile — maybe some little yarn legs. Now I can’t wait to get home and go through my scrap fabric!

  5. e.t. says:

    i love how simple they are to make!!
    i also love how you painted the walls in the room – what did you use to make the design above closet door??

  6. TEMA says:

    Love, love, love these little birds and can’t wait to make them. So simple, so sweet!
    Also just wanted to say… the little gir’s bedroom is soooo lovely too. Love the colours and the embellishments that make it sing.

  7. Tara @ Suburble says:

    Love it! The simplicity of this project is charming and also very inspiring. Ashley, have you ever cut out fabric with your Cameo? I wonder if that could be used for this project.

  8. British American says:

    Very cute! Plus I’m jealous that Chloe has a room, whilst my almost 2 year old still sleeps in a crib in our room – since we haven’t been brave enough to move him in with his 5 year old brother yet! :P

  9. Laura says:

    Ashley, pásate por mi blog, te he dejado una sorpresa. UN beso

  10. Amy says:

    Very sweet. Looking forward to doing this project for my little girl’s room.
    Where did you get your curtains and rug? I really like the red/pink combination.
    Thank you!

  11. Carrie H says:

    I love this! I have been trying to figure out what to hang over our latest baby’s crib, and I just happen to have 3 6×6 canvases left over from another project! yay!!!

  12. Kandace says:

    These are great! I’m definitely trying this but for my sewing room!

  16. Katrina says:

    I haven’t commented in a while, but you never cease to amaze me with your projects. I’m thinking a ladybug would be cute, too! I want to be like you when I grow up… Darn! I’m already grown up! We do aspire to be more like you. Thank you for inspiring us! Move over, Martha Stewart!

  17. Zepequeña says:

    Lovely idea. I´ll try it!


  18. Rachel says:

    Cute cute and cute. So cute. Seriously.

  19. Mary Lou Hart says:

    Love it! Have been planning on doing something similar (butterflies) in my daughters room but hadn’t figured out how to attach the fabric to the canvas. Problem solved! And maybe I’ll switch to birdies now.

  20. Jen says:

    Super cute! I love how easy they are to make too. Why is it that it takes so long to complete nursery projects? I’m still ‘working on’ our nursery (from my first daughter who was born 3.5 yrs ago). I figure maybe I will finish it for her 20mth old sister!?!? Well maybe for the next one ;)

  21. Katherine of Aurora Spitfire says:

    These are adorable! I guess the only good thing about dead Pinterest links is that you end up making it your very own.

  22. Sunnie says:

    These are really cute, does anyone have any ideas or animals to make them for a boy? Im into western/cowboy also, thanks!

  23. Emily says:

    These are so sweet! They are perfect for a nursery. I really like the tutorial!
