Creative uses for Spooky Halloween Birds
By Charisa Darling on October 08, 2013
Spooky bird decorations for Halloween? Love them. Can't get enough of them. I have more than a few sitting around and it hit me that they should be doing something.
Just look at this guy standing there. He needs a job.
I think he and his buddies are dying for some action. Here's how I fixed this problem.
Use an Exacto knife to carefully cut a slit into their beaks. Follow the line in the plastic to "open" their mouths by separating the top from the bottom. Warning! It's very easy to slip and cut yourself - be careful!!! I chose not to post process pictures because every one looks like I was, well, cutting into a bird. Even though it's fake it just doesn't look good.
Once you have a slit in their beak the limits are endless. Here, three of the birds are holding up a sign in my dining room.
