a messy bird....

You know when you get an idea in your head...then you just have to make it - well this is how my pinata bird came about.
I had an idea, then an inspiration, then another idea to make a paper mache bird as part of my display at kids in style. Then of course half way though, it turned into an obsession.
You have to always be watching, as the minute I turned my back, more salt was added, then about a cup of water....... definitely the wrong consistency for my project - I mean OUR project! 

I had a little helper who ended up just as obsessed with seeing it finished as me.

Taking shape at last....


All finished and hanging for the show.....of course I had stores asking if I sell these too - the answer is a big NOOOOOOOOOOOO.
