A cute little bird house that can be displayed year after year!
Who did you make it for?
I made it for my Mom who loves bird houses.
What materials did you use?
Valentine's Day themed papers and picks, bird from a Christmas Pick, Shimmery paints, Hot glue gun, heart brad, gingham ribbon, small wooden birdhouse.
How did you make it?
This is one of those $1 mini birdhouses from Michaels that I covered with some Making Memories Love Notes paper. I added some Valentine picks to it as well as a bird that was white, that I had leftover from a Christmas pick, which I covered in some Hotty Pink and Pink Poinsettia Shimmerz paint! I also added a mini heart brad to the body of the bird. To finish off the birdhouse, I added a gingham bow and a Making Memories Love Notes Tag, which I also covered in some Pink Poinsettia Shimmerz.
