Begin by taking you CD and spray-painting it black (be sure to do it in a ventilated room or outdoors). While you are waiting for the CD to dry (read spray paint instructions for drying time) use your Exacto knife or scissors to cut out two triangle shapes for the beak out of yellow craft foam. Once CD is dry, use your marker to outline two round eyes and paint in with white paint and allow drying about 15 min. When white paint is dry use your black paint to outline eyes and add a black dot to center of eyes. Let stand until completely dry before continuing. It avoids paint smearing. When completely dry, spray with a finishing gloss spray. Now you can hot glue your beak on with the top piece slightly higher onto the CD. You can then use your marker to add details to beak. Using your black foam cut a circle larger than CD to place on as backing. Take a small loop of jute and glue to back of CD as hanger then glue on black backing to make it nice and tidy. Lastly take your half straw hat and glue to top of CD and decorate with sunflowers. This is makes a nice Spring or Fall project.
