Home Decor Projects: Bird & Forsythia Picture

This is a project from last spring. After a banquet with my husband, we got to take home a vase of flowers which included pussy willows (my favorite!) and some forsythia (a new favorite!). I pressed some of the forsythia blossoms and created this picture for our living room:

This is just black construction paper, onto which I traced a bird image that I found online, then free-hand cut. I used an old frame that we already had, so again, cheap project! The only downside is that the frame's glass had cracked and I took it out. Now the flowers are starting to come unglued because they are not pressed in by glass. Although, I do kind of like the 3D effect!
