This first thrifty find is a pretty great one. I gave him a total make over, and I'm very pleased with the results. I found this handsome little owl at Salvation Army for $2.81. He was cute as is, but I knew I wanted to add him to Denali's owl collection (Denali and I have had a thing for owls for quite a few years now). So, why not make him a pink ombre owl?
It was really easy to do. I started by priming him, so that I would get better coverage with the pink. Then I started at the bottom first and painted about 1 1/2" up in Martha's Pink Flamingo craft paint. Then I added a little white paint to the pink, and painted another 1 1/2". I kept adding a little more white each time and ended up with 5 shades of pink. I blended the lines between the colors each time so that there wasn't a harsh line.
