Love Birds

Hi friends...I have a recycled project today. I have seen those love birds in a mason jar project and just fell in love. Since a long time I was planning to have a version of my own.

First I do not have a jar of the required size :( and to top it I do not dare to make any thing in glass considering these things have very small shelve life thanks to my son :)

So I went ahead with the resources I have. I decided to try it using a plastic jar I have. First I cut out a heart shape from the side and lined it with red beads. Used some golden leaf and butterfly. I have put some green thing in the bottom for grass, can you guess what it is?????
It is a dish scrubber :P

I have been holding on to these cute little birds from the mobile that I had some time back. After I was done with the design on the jar, I was thinking it is just a matter of time that I will just put the pair of bird inside on a swing. But knowledge of my physics was put to a through test while trying to balance those 2 birds on that stick. They just would not stay straight!! Then my FIL came to my rescue and phew it was finally done. Used washi tape to design the lid of the jar.

I have added some roses across the base and put tassels at the two ends of that swing. This was not easy as I had imagined earlier but I am happy to have it strike out from my list :)

Please do let me know you thoughts on it.
