Hi Everyone…

I altered this little wooden birdhouse yesterday and recorded the video, spent this morning editing it and chopping it down from 2 hours to 7 mins 🙂  I love how it looks.

  • Wooden Birdhouse from Stampers Grove
  • PaperArtsy Fresco Finish Acrylic Paint in Granny Smith Opaque Chalk Finish

Des-Res Bird Box

Hi everyone!

I have a fab little wooden bird box project to share with you tonight 😀

Remember last night I mentioned that I will be doing an all day workshop at Stampers Grove in Edinburgh well.. it is a full day Imagination Crafts workshop, using all the lovely products they have launched recently.. it’s going to be a great day..so if you fancy joining me click here and it will take you to the Workshop List at Stampers Grove and it provides you will all the information you need.

So back to the des-res bird box, I bought this wee wooden bird house on Saturday after the flip book workshop.. with a view to painting it.. and that’s what I did tonight..

bh1

Take two colours of Starlights Paints.. I used Mint and Rich Gold

bh2

I was going to make a tiled roof from circles of painted cardstock, but my circle punch was too big for the tiny wee roof and it looked silly..so I cracked open the Stampendous Shaved Ice and sprinkled it all over the gold painted roof.. it looks really nice as the ice takeson a different colour.

I also switched out the hanging cord, I thought the one that came with it looked too thick to be on such a small box.

bh5

I would quite like to paint a full size bird box in these colours and mount it on the side of my wee craft shed, I think it would be a nice addition 🙂

bh6

Well that’s me for another night, I am off for an early night, as the pup had me up 3 times last night!

See you tomorrow, and thanks for popping round

Bird House

 

I thought that I had ruined the look of the bird house by adding the texture paste, so I asked my hubby for his opinion,… he said it looked fine, and looked like the birds had poo’d down the front of the house!! typical lol
