Decorated and decoupaged bird houses are an easy and fun craft to do with my kids in springtime. We have lots of birds in the yard and they often use the birdhouses.
I made my birdhouse by cutting little strips of fabric and gluing them down with Mod Podge. When they dried we painted a couple of coats of the Mod Podge on to seal the birdhouses.
You could also paint some polyurethane on the houses to make them really weather resistant.
I want to be a bird so I can live in one!
Lily made her house from some Amy Butler scrapbook paper we bought for 3.99$ at TJMAXX.
Hers looks very modern!
Gigi went freestyle on her little birdhouse. After meticulously painting it over and over she tore up some pieces of the paper and glued them down. She was very happy with the result!
If you don't want to hang up the birdhouses they make a cute outdoor table decoration.
These birdhouses were 3.99$ at the craft store.
Yikes, those are my Japanese tailor shears!
