Little Bird Feeder Ornaments

Categories: Christmas and Plastic Canvas.

Nature related ornaments are lovely to hang on the tree.  Several years ago when I was in a plastic canvas crafting mode I made some little bird feeder ornaments.
I got them out a few days ago to hang on the tree and thought I would post a little tutorial how to make them.  I’m not sure how many people still stitch on plastic canvas.  It certainly isn’t as popular a stitching craft as crochet, knitting, and cross stitch.

You start with 7 count plastic canvas which can be bought at crafts stores such as Michaels and even at dollar stores.  The little cups were also purchased at a craft store, about 10 or 12 per packet.  I used small amounts of red and white yarn, some bird seed for the cups and some tiny little birds that I had in my craft closet.

Cut one piece of plastic canvas into a small square 9 holes x 9 holes.  Cut the other square of plastic canvas 15 holes x 15 holes.

Cover both squares with stitching using any pattern you wish.  Be sure to stitch around the edges of each square to finish it off.  Add a loop to the center of the biggest square for hanging on the tree.

Glue the bottom of the little cup onto the center of the smallest square.  Add a bit of bird seed to the cup. Then glue the bigger square onto the top of the cup.  Glue on a tiny bird.  Let dry and hang onto your tree.
