Papier-Mache Birds from Viva Terra

Papier-Mache Birds from Viva Terra

Maybe we've been unduly influenced by the label "lovebird" but we do have a little crush on these papier-mache birdies, which are larger than they appear in the photo. We'd love to clump a whole slew of these recycled content cuties together on a shelf...

Granted, our clump of birds fantasy probably won't be actualized (at least not with these guys) since each bird is $49.00. Maybe we could settle for one lovebird. Regardless, we're glad that the Haitian artists who make these birds from recycled cement bags will hopefully be getting fair trade for their art.

The perching birds are available in white and mint, while the lovebirds come in white and aqua. The dimensions of the birds are bigger than you might imagine, ranging from 9.5" high to 12" long! Check them out here.

Have you ever made your own papier-mache creatures?
