Singing Crochet Chickadee

Step 10: The Perch

Picture of The Perch
As I mentioned in Step 7, in order to get the chickadee to sing it needs to sit on a piece of metal.   So what I did was make a little stand to look like a tree branch.  I found a flat piece of wood and drilled a hole into it.  Then I took a couple of floral stem wires and formed a branch (it is made of 4 22 gauge wires twisted around each other).  I glued the wires into the hole and then reinforced it with some Sugru.  I also used the Sugru to affix the small piece of metal to the branch.  The Sugru is white so when it had dried I painted it with brown paint to blend in with the brown yarn.
