  • 1. Here's the perfect, must-have accessory when going bird watching, to a picnic or for a leisurely stroll through your local botanical gardens. For bird pendant, drill small hole through the top and bottom of faux bird. Faux birds are usually hollow so the two holes should allow you to insert a head pin all the way through the bird. String a coordinating bead onto the head pin. Insert head pin through the bottom, then top holes. Stack a plastic flower petal beads onto bird and finish with a small red bead. Use pliers to make a loop at the top of the bird.
  • 2. Use flat nose pliers and jump rings to attach bird to center of colorful beaded rosary chain. Attach jump rings to chain ends, then attach hook-and-eye clasp to jump rings to complete your "so tweet" creation.
