Wooden Birdhouses

I’ve had these two little Wooden Birdhouses sitting in my “things to make one dayheap 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:

  • 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

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

    What a great project, I’ve never thought to decorate the birdhouses with DP, such a great idea! Thanks for playing along with us over at SOS! I hope you will join us again tomorrow for our 1st Birthday Celebration :)

    To use the words of my wife, these are simply adorable. She has a small obsession with birdhouses. It probably comes from her obsession with birds in general. I’ll definitely need to show these to her. They look like projects she would enjoy. I’m hoping to get one for her birthday that’s coming up. I’m not personally good with crafts, so I’ll need to find a good company online. Hopefully I find one. Thanks for the pics and post! http://www.tazmangifts.com/listing.asp?dept_id=30070&nopopup=1
