This DIY Printable Bird Garland is for the bird nerds, colour lovers and paper crafters! I’ve had this idea in my head for a long time, and I’m excited to share the finished product! It’s a DIY Printable Bird Garland featuring my paintings of a rainbow of birds from around the world!
If you follow PRINTSPIRING on Instagram you might have seen some of the behind the scenes action. The time-lapses of the birds appearing on the page have been super popular! I also shared in a blog post the art materials I was using. It’s been a huge project – designing, painting, editing and assembling, but it’s finally here and ready for you!
Let me introduce the feathered friends that feature in this rainbow garland.
The bright red cardinal is from the woodlands of Northern America. He’s hanging out beside a pretty flame-coloured tanager from the mountains of Mexico. I’ve spotted the tiny yellow-bellied sunbird right outside my window, hovering in the hibiscus flowers here in Sumbawa, Indonesia. Green toucanets live in the forests of Central and South America. Kingfishers, with varying shades of blue plumage can be found in tropical places all over the world, usually near a river or stream! The indigo coloured splendid fairy-wren, is a beautiful little bird from Australia, and the spectacularly coloured violet-backed starling on the end can be found in the woodlands and savanna forests of Africa!
