Birdhouse decorating idea...


I think the little birdhouse mounted on the shelf is just the cutest idea and it's just simple painting. I even think I could do it!
I think the taller birdhouse with the trail of rocks is another easy to do project. AC Moore and Micheals both sell birdhouses, a little imagination and paint and you have an adorable home for the birds!
I took these pictures at the garden tour I recently attended and thought I would share this charming idea. I also saw another birdhouse where an old license plate was bent in half and used as the roof, I hope to try this myself.

They're great! You can let your imagination run wild :D

Teeny word of caution though, make sure in advance that the type of birds that will move in (usually to do with the size of hole in the bird box) aren't scared of any colours - I remember vaguely some birds are attracted to some colours (like red, because they look for berries..) and are scared of others.... not sure it would be applicable though!

Lovely idea :D

I can't wait to see your birdfeeder... I was looking on Google yesterday and you could make feeders dedicated to different types of birds with colour and different food...

It made me itch to have a go, but we can't feed the birds here due to a local mouse problem... (Well I could but I don't want the mice back) I miss it!
