Tree Branch and Bird
A great focal point for a bird and twig themed wedding invitation is a tree branch and bird. For this homemade wedding invitation you will need heavy paper, cardboard, decorative papers, glue, a pencil, a marker, and scissors. For this homemade invite you can use a variety of decorative papers such as wrapping paper, brown butcher paper, and scrapbook paper. Just choose a paper that matches your wedding color scheme.
Fold the heavy paper in half. Then use the pencil to draw a tree shape onto a piece of cardboard. To draw a tree shape, begin by imagining a twig. Start by drawing two parallel lines from the bottom of the page moving upwards. Then have those lines branch away from each other. Add more parallel lines on the inside of those lines. Then create a V shape by continuing the second parallel lines towards the middle of the twig. Cut this shape out of the cardboard. It will be a template for the rest of your invitations.
Then create the bird template by drawing a bird shape on a piece of cardboard. This is done by drawing a teardrop shape that points horizontally. Then add an upside down U shape to the rounded edge of the tear drop. Cut out the template.
To create these invitations use the templates to trace the shapes onto the decorative paper. Cut out the shapes from the paper. Glue the tree so the bottom is resting at the bottom of the invitation. Then glue the bird so it is sitting slightly above a branch on the tree.
Add feet using the marker. To draw feet start by making an upside down Y shape coming out of the body of the bird. Then add a line to the center of the Y to create another toe. You can also add a wing to the bird by cutting out a small tear drop shape and gluing it inside the body of the bird. Add a beak and an eye using the marker as well. This homemade bird and twig themed wedding invitation is unique.
