not to bad, but gosh isnt easy eather, I cut tail and wings after maybe cutting 10 differnt ones till I came up with one I thought was okay,cut out of stiffner I think its called used when makeing a purse so its stiffer, used a styrofoam egg for head, cut off a part, and glued on with e6000, feet were made from pipe cleaner, peak from scrap of felt, dipped in coffee so the orange wasnt so bright, the feet was dipped also,had this stuff called soft flock, you paint on a adhesie then drop on flocking let dry and it sorta of puffs up, kinda look like feathers, eyes are black 3d paint, sorry about the photo, but you get the idea.
heres the link incase you would like to make one.

Oh my, Oddie, yours is truly Beautiful!!! And you shared the directions which makes your project even more special knowing I couldn't begin to compare with yours!

I just told you how talented you are in my last post and now I'm speechless after seeing this creation. Woohoo, you go, girl...

gosh, thank you! you never know till you try just what you can do, if its a project you think you might like doesnt cost much to try, as jan said the dove can be made from a variety of products you might have on hand,thought i might use a clove for the eyes, but couldnt find mine, must be in my craft room with the food coloring LOL! could use those stick pins with the small balls on top also,I never seemed to have the products I need for crafts so I would just look around my craft room outside or anywhere till I could find something else to use, most ideas are not my own but I do do the crafting.
