Flamingo Christmas

Submitted to Community Chat

Our youngest loves flamingos, and this is her homemade gift from me for Christmas!

  • Sketched flamingo shape on whiteboard
  • Cut out using jigsaw, and sanded
  • Sprayed an ombre effect from dark at the head to very light on the legs/feet using spray paint in 3 different colors
  • Used drill press to create spot for glass eye
  • Hand-painted facial features
  • Glued glass eye in place
  • Added heavy-duty hanger to back of flamingo
  • Used spray sealer all over the flamingo
  • Ta-da!
