David tells us what you’ll see in this video:

• An introduction to Becorns by David M Bird: I create characters by building with acorns, sticks, pine cones, and other nature craft materials. Then I take them into the wilderness and photograph them with birds, squirrels, chipmunks, frogs, and other wildlife.

• I build a birdhouse to attract a family of Eastern Bluebirds and they build a nest inside.

• I draw/sketch out a plan for the story I want to show with my little acorn people.

• I show how to build an acorn man using DIY arts and craft techniques.

• I share what I learned about character design and storytelling as I worked as a designer for Lego Bionicle.

• The bluebirds lay eggs, the eggs hatch, and the baby bluebirds begin to grow.

• I show my photography techniques and process as mom, dad, and a juvenile bluebird fly in and out of the birdhouse with worms, grubs, and spiders to feed the baby bluebirds.

• I try to photograph the fledglings as they take their first flight from the birdhouse.

• And finally I share the end product of this crazy fairy garden acorn art project.

  • Becky Added Those little Becorns look fun to make! Around the corner from our house, one of our neighbors has an oak tree that produces HUGE acorns. Maybe I'll go pick a couple of them up and make a big Becorn. (I just need to get a hot glue gun.) They look so fun to make!
