Birdhouses


I took these to the hospital shop last Friday and had a really good day there including selling one of these. So I just have one left looking for a home.

When I visited The Works recently I found some bare wooden birdhouse which I thought would make perfect Christmas decorations to sell. Hubby painted them and I set to decorating them.


I used lots of fun flock on the bottom for snow. The cute robins and wooden hearts came from Hobbycraft. I added some wooden pine cones and twigs and flowers from Wild Orchid. The bling I found in my stash and came from the Hobby House a few years ago when I won a challenge.


I used a white Wink of Stella pen on the roof, really pleased with the effect.
