Here's how I made it...
cardboard birdhouse (8" tall)
clock fit-up (2 13/16" diameter)
Modge Podge or glue (I used Modge Podge)
8 - 3/4" popsicle sticks
1 piece of decorative wood trim
1 small wood dowel
Pink floral paper
Pink and white craft paint
Paintbrush or foam brush
Hot glue gun
Embellishments of your choice
Most of the supplies were bought at Michael's Arts & Crafts.
|Supplies (not all of them are shown here)|
Trace off the shape of the birdhouse on one of your floral sheets, and mark off flaps on each side.
The floral papers I used are listed here:
Light pink floral and striped floral are from DCWV "The Luxury Stack"
Dark pink floral used on the base is Michael's brand "Hot Pink Damask"
Paint the sticks pink, let them dry and then paint a coat or two of white. Then once the white dries, sand through it so that the pink shows through in some areas for that shabby effect.
Glue some of the dark pink floral paper to the inside eaves of the house.
Make a small hole at the front for the bird's perch. Cut the dowel to the length you'd like, leaving plenty of length to go through to the back. I took a tiny box lid and hot glued it to the inside of the birdhouse, poked a hole in it too and slid the dowel through the house and lid. This, with some glue gave the dowel extra stability.
Thanks for looking!
