Another Altered Birdhouse

Here's another $1 Birdhouse from JoAnn's. It started out with bare wood, a perch and a hole. I pulled out the perch and covered the front with thin card board, then I was off to work.
I used Webster's Pages card stock to cover the bird house.

I made a door and a window with some shutters then created a flower box for the window and fussy cut some flowers to put in the box. The gold trim is from Michael's and the lace is from JoAnn's.

I had some fencing left over from one of my other houses. These got painted with pink then distressed with some crackle paint. The sides of the house are overflowing with flowers with even a few roses growing through the slats of the fence. I hope you like my house. I'd love to hear your comments :-)
Thanks for stopping by,


  1. It's beautiful! You did a great job! Look like lots of work but it sure paid off.

  2. I am so glad that you posted another birdhouse. I bought the $1 birdhouse from JoAnn's. Now to get started. Have you posted detailed instructions on your beginning birdhouses? I didn't know where to go on you blog. Do you paint the birdhouse first? etc
