Bird Artwork for the Outdoors

Decorate an outdoor (or indoor) space with these bright, fun bird-theme pieces of art that you can make yourself.

Download the four bird artwork templates shown in the summer 2012 issue of Do It Yourself magazine at the link below.

Click here to download the bird artwork templates.

To create your version of this artwork, print out the templates, enlarge to desired size, and trace onto a plywood square (the ones shown are 24x24 inches). Using exterior-grade paint in selected colors, paint each artwork according to your color scheme. Once dry, apply two coats of sealer to keep the artwork looking great all season.

TIP: We used striped paper to make a few of the birds pop off the plywood canvas. To do this, cut out the shape according to the template, adhere the bird shape to the plywood using glue, and then seal as directed above.
