Hummingbird Hanger

Hummingbird Hanger

Wondering how to assemble your Hummingbird Hanger activity? Look no further!

This special activity brings a pop of color to your home just in time for spring. Using just a photo, a wooden cutout, string, Mod Podge, and a foam brush, we can have this assembled in no time!

Tip: Grab a pair of scissors before you begin. You'll want to trim the edges off the photo to line up with the wooden door hanger.

Instructions:

  1. Squirt some of the Mod Podge directly onto the wood.
  2. Use the foam brush to coat the entire piece of wood with the Mod Podge.
  3. Place the photo over the wood. Line up the holes in the picture with the holes in the wood before pressing it down.
  4. Smooth the picture down with your fingers so there are no air bubbles.
  5. Squirt a little bit of Mod Podge onto the top of the picture. 
  6. Use the brush to coat the whole picture.
  7. Allow to dry.
  8. Cut the excess picture so it is the same shape as the wood.
  9. Loop the string through both holes and tie a knot.
