Little Birdie Houses
I had supplies to make some more pedestal birdhouses, so I thought I would make some for my kitchen. I showed you the large one I made here.
I also made a couple for my spring mantel here using these supplies. Notice those candlesticks were cut off?
And this is how they turned out.
So for this project I am using the tops of those green candlesticks. I started out with this.
I painted the bases, pedestals, and roofs white. The houses I painted yellow.
The yellow was a little bright so I watered down some white paint and brushed it on like a white wash. Then I sanded and stained everything.
Then I used some Elmer's wood glue and glued the pieces together.
Let them dry overnight and I was done.
Okay, I think I am officially done making pedestal birdhouses for this year. Tomorrow I'll show you where I put them.
I love these! I am going to have to make some...thanks for the instructions!ReplyDelete
