Gather some fun materials. Paint, twine/jute rope, and some glue. We are going to turn these little houses into sweet mini farmhouses.
Spring is finally in the air! I had these sweet wooden bird houses sitting around, and today I decided to finally do something with them. I turn them into some sweet Spring decor! What's great about these is that you can do them with the kiddos too.
I began with brushing on a coat of Warn Milk paint. I just didn't paint the trim.
Then let it dry...
Then I painted the roof and trim all in Steel Town Grey!
Let that dry for a minute, oh they look so adorable!
Then I grabbed the jute and glue gun, and lined the bottom edge of the birdhouse with it. It adds a farmhouse flair.
I did the same to the perch of the house.
Using the hot glue gun I added a few wood stands to each the bottoms.
Then using some sand paper to distress the edges randomly around the whole birdhouse. A little distressing for a vintage look.
And that's it, how cute!
They look so sweet with my Spring decor! Check out my Facebook Page, Gilbert Marketplace, for more projects!
