Cute Little Birdie House

While I know there is still snow in some parts of the United States, I've decided to start working on my spring decor. Don't worry, I'm not putting it out yet, but I thought I'd get a jump start on it by creating it now and putting it aside until it's time to decorate for spring and honestly, it won't be that for away!

So, my spring decor crafting started off with a little birdhouse. My Momma gave me a craft basket for Christmas that was full of crafting supplies like Mod Podge and foam brushes and some wooden items for decoupaging. One of those wooden items was a little wooden bird house. In the past I probably wouldn't have paid much attention to a birdhouse, but I think as I grow older my style is changing and growing and I could instantly see the potential in this little birdhouse. 

The birdhouse will eventually sit on my mantle. I don't think it would hold up for the use of actual birds as I used scrapbook paper, Mod Podge, acrylic paint, and ribbon to create it. 

But I am in love with the end result.....
