Birdhouses decorating DIY and a confession

I got these cute wooden birdhouses from American craft stores for no more than $1 each! They don’t know how good they got it across the pond right! Bargain value time I say!

I don’t have a before picture but they were just plain wood, imagine it will you. I painted the ‘body’ with standard white acrylic paint then papered the roof with strips of newsprint (I like the texture the text adds.) The roof then got washed with a 50:50 white paint water wash and the ‘trim’ painted in gold (because these are bling tactic y’know!

Now comes confession time, I have only finished two of these, lazy lazy crafter that I am.

So hopefully this will motivate me to get them done because it’s really is a super easy a quick project!
