Birdhouse craft.


I felt like I needed some more dimensional things on my wall, so I made a little birdhouse.

I made the pieces out of cardboard, covered it in scraps from an old book and painted it with a light wash of blue paint (watercolor). It was very thick after this so I drilled holes in it with my handy Fiskers hand drill, so I could then lace the pieces together with cotton twine.

I used a twig for the perch. The bird I made out of paperclay and painted with acrylics. Isn't it cute? I also filled the inside with some leftover scraps of shredded paper and twine, so it's got a little nest in there.
