Altered Birdhouse

Today is a beautiful,snowy day. It is Saturday 13 Feb. My family had a late breakfast and everyone is looked after,the dog,the cats and the birds….Now it’s time for ‘Me-time’…Hopefully!! I bought a few birdhouses a while back and had this dream of doing something with it,but never did…So today I decided to pull one out and make something….and what better place to take photos of my project than outside in the snow…..

This is What I made….


It started off with a little wooden Birdhouse from the Dollar store ($2). I tore little strips of paper,inked the edges and started on the roof…DSCN9175

..I curled the edges up for a 3D effect..


I cut a hole in the back to insert a tea candle (the battery operated ones)…


…and this is what it looks like with the lights off and the tea candle on inside the little house…..


Some close ups: I used Kaisercraft ‘Base coat’ col – ‘Rock’ for the walls and chimney. Prima flowers ‘Hello Pastel’ vine and a Resin birdy (I used markers to color the birds…DSCN9236


I used Kaisercraft ‘Base Coat’ – ‘Concrete’ for the roof and inked the edges with Prima inks….’Ingvild Bolme’s ‘Dark Rust’.


Prima birdie,little nest and a Prima flower. I used twine around the base of the house…. (…and real snow)



…and there it is on the mantel in the TV room,with the ‘candle’ burning,warming the room on the snowy Saturday.

Thank You for looking

Till next time
