My Chevron and Birdie Initial H

Michael's has been having AMAZING clearance and sales lately - so I got my craft on and made this beautiful chevron H :)
I picked up this letter H for $1.99 and these little birds for about $.19 or $.29 each - I don't exactly remember. I also grabbed some for a friend.
I have been loving on the chevron lately and I had the purple border pictured that I used as a stencil. (The unpainted letters were cheaper, but they were out of H's, plus now I get to skip a step!)

Step 1: Trace the chevron stencil onto the letter. I used pencil.
Step 2: Paint in the chevrons. The color I ended up using is Americana, called Mississippi Mud. I did two coats, then debated about fixing it up and doing another coat...and then decided it looked just fine from a little distance away! Just don't look closely!!

Step 3: Paint the little birdies.

Step 4: After trying about 15 different placements for the birds, give up, and just go with your first idea. I glued them one with some Elmer's.
Step 5: Display!
Well, that was a fun and easy project! I love adding new items to my shelf.

Remember how I said I picked up materials for my friend too? Here's how hers turned out. I absolutely love the gray and blues! Too bad we don't have the same initial or I might steal it! :)


  1. This is so cute! I pinned the "J" since I liked the gray with the blue birds- but both are adorable. Thanks for sharing!

    1. Thanks for pinning! I really love hers too!

  2. Looks awesome! I love your little shelf with everything on it!

    1. Thanks so much Veronica! I have fun decorating our shelf - it is probably the coolest thing in our house that we made!

  3. So cute! Chevron and birds are two of my favorite things!
