Now take a closer look and you will see that these hens are actually made of lavender buds. Check it out!
Isn’t that great! This is going to be my next project. Well – let me restate that. This will be my mother’s next project. Between the two of us, I think we can figure out how she can make these cute little lavender hens.
They’re basically made out of styrofoam and loose lavender buds. Now Lord knows I have bushels and bushels of lavender buds! So – Mom, if you’re reading this, go buy styrofoam and let’s get started!
The tail looks like pieces of shaved bark.
The wings are made of the same shaved bark, which I’m sure you can find at any craft store.
The red stuff is crepe paper. Not sure yet what the little beak is. Who knows, maybe Michael’s sells little chicken beaks. Anyway, if anyone has any suggestions on how to make these lavender hens I’m all ears. I think it would be a great project.
In the meantime, if you would rather just buy them (which is what I did), contact Silver Barn Antiques and I’m sure they will fix you right up!
