Altered Birdhouse


Hi everyone!
Happy Thursday!

Today I get to show you another project that uses that awesome


For my project, I decided to alter a birdhouse for a cute little home decor item.
I found this little birdhouse at my local craft store for $1.
It was unfinished wood, so I simply painted it white with some acrylic paint and let it dry. Once it was dry, I started embellishing. I added some patterned paper to the roof and then to cover the seam going down the middle, I simply added a piece of white cardstock that I folded in half and used a border punch to give it a decorative edge. Then I added some lace and string pearls to the front of my roof. I also added some pearls all along the bottom edge of the house. Then I simply punched out 3 butterflies and layered them on top of each other to give some dimension and added a flight trail with some glitter. For my finishing touch, I made that cute little flower using some Patchwork CANDi and added some leaves from a leaf punch.

Here is a side view picture:
