Love makes a house a home...

Welcome March! And with that comes the hint of Spring, clear skies, green grass, birds chirping, and flowers blooming. It's also the perfect time of year to create Spring projects to brighten up your home and let the sunshine in! I had an idea for this project after finding this adorable little wooden birdhouse at my local craft store and then the project basically created itself. I started with a wooden 3 1/2 inch block, decopaged some papers to all the sides, added a white picket fence and all those wonderfully, sweet embellishments like the giant sparkled butterfly, (which landed on the roof), sequin flowers, sparkled flowers, gem stickers and floral gems. The top was made by adding moss, the birdhouse, a teeny red cardinel, floral gems and of course, the butterfly. For the tag, I simply added a rub-on and adhered the tag to the side of the block. I love how this project turned out and I hope it inspires you to create one of your own. :)

Hilary - this is gorgeous. I just picked up a little birdhouse at Michaels last week. I'll have to try some your techniques.
