Wooden Birdhouses...

I've had these two little Wooden Birdhouses sitting in my "things to make one day" heap pile and after watching a video over at Court's Crafts, I decided to blow the dust off them and turn them into something cute.

I made one house Shabby Chic using Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge and the other house, I made Whimsical using Cindy Loo and the Ribbons & Rosettes cartridges.

Here's how I decorated my little wooden birdhouses:

Shabby Chic Birdhouse

Shabby Chic Birdhouse

  • Distress a white painted birdhouse with sandpaper and inks.   
  • Mod Podge paper on house
  • Adhere lace ribbon and adhesive pearls on house
  • Add a spiral flower cut from the Art Philosophy cartridge.

Whimsical Birdhouse

Whimsical Birdhouse

  • Mod Podge paper on the birdhouse
  • Roof -Cricut Ribbons & Rosettes scallop boarder cut at 1/2 x 3 inches.
  • Wrap twine aroung house
  • Whimsical bird cut from Cindy Loo cartridge cut at 2 inches.
