Two Turtle Doves - Before and After

Here's a simple pair of birds I found at Goodwill. These wooden cutouts are about 4 inches tall. And they were begging to be covered with cute paper...

I may have spent a total of 15 minutes on this project. Five minutes of that was probably time spent selecting the paper I wanted to use. Another 5 minutes was probably time spent just setting up a nice "after" photo...

Ta da! And I didn't even have to paint the stem or the base. I did attempt to tie a jingle bell around each bird's neck, but I didn't like the look so I left it alone.

What's your project this week? I'd love to hear about it!

This one is featured over at Thrifty Girl's Before & After Party. Check it out for more great makeovers!
