To spruce up my dessert station for Easter dinner, I created this papered chick fork holder with a wooden pencil caddy that I picked up from Michaels.
When hosting a large family meal, I like to set up a dessert station with the plates, utensils and of course the yummy dessert on a separate table. That way when it is time to dig into the sweets, I can easily make the table transition from dinner to dessert.
FolkArt Acrylic Colors - Fresh Foliage
Mod Podge - Gloss
Bird Pencil Caddy Surface
FolkArt Extreme Glitter - Hologram Peridot
Polka dot scrapbook paper
Silk flower petals pink
Silk flower petals yellow
Crocheted flower trim
1. Paint the caddy with 2 coats of fresh foliage paint. Paint the caddy with 2 coats of extreme glitter peridot. Allow for dry time in between coats.
2. Trace the bird shape onto the back of the scrapbook paper. Cutout shape. Apply Mod Podge to the back of the paper. Center on the caddy, top coat with Mod Podge. Use your fingers to press out any air bubbles. Smooth your brush strokes.
3. Using hot glue, attach a ribbon around the back of the caddy. Glue layered petals, flower trim and rhinestones near the tail of the bird. Glue a rhinestone for an eye and add additional stones around the base of the bird.
Note: The pencil caddy was in the spring/seasonal section with lots of other wood shapes and surfaces.
