DIY PVC birds
"I absolutely LOVE these birds! They are quite easy to make once you get familiar with using a jig saw and heat gun. And don't be intimidated...it just takes a little practice. These birds are a fun craft to make for yourself or to give as gifts. I made a flamingo for my parents for out by their pool and a blue heron to stand on display out by the pond on the their property. He looks perfect and definitely gets everyone's attention. And since everyone that sees them usually wants one too, these are a fantastic craft to make and sell! We've included step by step instructions as well as a list of materials, but you can find a much more details tutorial as well as more pictures over at the CrazyDiyMom blog."
