Tweedy bird on display


Recycled items

  • Off-cuts from old painter’s planks
  • Bird pictures from leftover wallpaper or wrapping paper

Also needed

  •  Modge podge and sponge brush
  • Small scissors
  • Water-based varnish


  1. Wipe the off-cuts with a cloth and cover them with a layer of modge podge. Put aside to dry.
  2. Cover the picture side of the paper with a very thin layer of modge podge. Allow to dry and then cut around the edges of the images with the scissors.
  3. Decide how you want to arrange the images on the wood. Paint some sealant on the reverse side of the first image and place in position. Press it down gently and rub over it with your fingers or a damp sponge to smooth away any air bubbles and excess glue. Repeat the process with the second image.
  4. When you have glued all your images onto the surface of the object, paint two coats of sealant over the surface for protection. Allow the first to dry before you apply a second coat.
