DIY Mixed Media Bird Sign

Lately I have been really into mixed media! I am loving all the amazing products by Tim Holtz, I find myself buying a lot of it. Seeing how I have a bunch now, I figured it was time to use some of it. So, I gathered a bunch of random supplies and got to work! Follow along as I make this DIY Mixed Media Bird Sign!


Thrift Store Sign

Faux Paper Flowers


Small Wood Round

Popsicle Sticks

Paints- Various Colors

Scarpbook Paper

Tim Holtz Paper & Cardboard Quote

First, I painted the sign, using a sage green paint. I didn’t do a thick coat I was ok with some wood showing through.

Second, I took popsicle sticks and staggered them and then glued them together using more popsicle sticks on the back.

Third, I painted the popsicle sticks using the sage green and then whitewashed them.

Fourth, I added some vintage style scrapbook paper to the sign. Which I believe came from a Hobby Lobby scrapbook paper book.

Fifth, I Mod Podged a Tim Holtz card on top of the scrapbook paper.

Sixth, I glued the popsicle sticks to the center of my frame. I also took some antique wax on the popsicle sticks and the frame.

Next, I painted the wood circle with an antique white paint and then antique waxed that also. Then I used two different stamps, one with the text and then the bird on top of that.

Then I added to popsicle sticks on the back of the circle. I wanted it to be raised up off the sign.

Finally, I added the wood circle and flowers on top of the popsicle sticks. As a finishing touch I added a butterfly cutout, also Tim Holtz. I think it was perfect final touch!

I think this turned out so SUPER CUTE!! Mixed Media is so much fun, and you truly can let the creative juices flow! That is my favorite part, there is no right or wrong way to create mixed media! It is also great for using all the little odds and ends in my craft supplies! Do you think you try you hand at something similar to this DIY Mixed Media Bird Sign?
