Today is gonna be short I promise! We finally brought our new puppy home and it’s basically fluffy chaos. We have an 11 pound golden retriever puppy alone (dog-less) for the first time. And the cat is stalking him. Luckily she doesn’t seem to hate him.
On to the crafting… This is another project featured in the mantle pics from day 2.
Snow Covered Bird Houses
I bought seven plain birdhouses from Joann’s, five small and two medium sized. I think the small ones were a dollar or so. I spray painted them all white.
I added silver paint to all of the holes and perches. Then I just randomly painted other parts silver, under the roof, the whole roof, around the base. I tried to keep it pretty basic, not a whole lot of silver.
They I used a paint brush, some elmers glue and some coarse glitter (I used Martha Stewarts) to add that winter flair.
The glitter doesn’t photograph too well but it’s really nice in person, it keeps your eye moving across the scene. That’s it for today. Off to play with the puppy!
