Birdhouse.....

 Let me begin by saying I'm sorry for the lopsided photo!  I wanted to take the picture at an angle and boy did I ever!   I have been visiting YouTube lately looking for new ideas and I came across some of the most gorgeous bird houses!  So I found myself a free download and made my very first little bird house!  They are the perfect size for making ornaments to hang on your tree.  I found some other templates and will probably do some for my girls as well as myself for the holidays.  This one is sort of Shabby Chic and I love the way it turned out.  I painted the roof green and then used Ranger Distress Crackle Paint in Picket Fence and I did some of that on the front also.  Lots of Wild Orchid Crafts flowers and leaves and some beads and a little key painted to match and it is ready to go.  I like this idea as you can make each one your own depending on how you choose to decorate.  Why don't you find your own download and make one for yourself or maybe two! 

Have a wonderful day and try to find some time to be creative!

Glenda,
I hope you are having a wonderful day! I love your birdhouse. I will definitely have to try to find some templates online and make one for my niece, she collects birdhouses and this would be perfect for her Christmas tree. Thanks for the idea - and hopefully I will carry it through.
