a few things that make my heart go pitter patter.

Spring Time Bird House

Wednesday, April 23, 2014

Spring is here in full force and doesn't it feel lovely.  After the craziest winter for most of the country, I think we are all extra excited to bring cheerful colors into our homes to reflect the cheerful outside. I used to think summer was my favorite season, but I'm starting to think it's maybe Spring.  Today, I am sharing how to create this sweet little Spring Time Bird House.

This is such a fun and simple project.  Start by cutting out the book pages for each side of the bird house. I also cut out pieces for the top of the bird house.

Apply a thin layer of Mod Podge to both the bird house and the book page.

Next, I carefully cut out a few flowers from my scrapbook paper and applied them in the same fashion as the book pages.

I wanted a little more spring time sparkle, so I gave the roof a quick brush with mod podge and sprinkled on some silver glitter.
