Baby Bird Nursery Birdhouse: Day 7

Baby Bird Nursery Birdhouses!

Aren't these just darling? And SUPER simple!!!


~Unfinished Wooden birdhouse (JoAnn's)

~Acrylic Paint




~Decoupage Medium (Mod Podge)

~Xacto Knife

Paint the edges of the birdhouse that will not be covered by paper.  It does not have to be perfect as you will be covering most of it with paper, and any defects in the edges add character!

Next measure and cut paper to fit the roof, front, back and sides.  I do this while the pain is still damp as any paint that carries over it just an extra detail!   I used a hole punch to create the hole for the perch.

Coat each part in turn with an even coat of Mod Podge and adhere the paper to the house.

Press down firmly with your fingers to adhere properly and eliminate any air bubbles .

Press the opening down with your finger so you can see it clearly, then cut it out with an Xacto Knife.

Now let it dry and then take a piece of sandpaper to the edges or any part you wish to appear worn.  Sometimes I go crazy, other times, I  don't sand it at all.  Each piece is different!  Now you have a cute and simple birdhouse!  You can leave it as it is, or embellish it as much as you want!  I love how versatile it is!

One lucky winner will get to keep this birdhouse!  Leave a comment so I can enter you in the drawing!!
