Well, after two weeks of 70 degree weather, I guess it's safe to say that Spring is actually here! To celebrate and add a little Spring color (and also as my entry for the Jinger Adams design team!), I made this birdhouse using some Echo Park and Doodlebug papers and a little bit of Cricut.
The wooden birdhouse came from Michaels. First I base coated the birdhouse with acrylic paint - pink for the roof, green for the base, and white for the walls - and then I traced the parts of the birdhouse to make patterns for cutting the patterned paper. The scallops on the roof were a little harder than I thought they'd be, since each side and each row was slightly different. I used Mod Podge to adhere the papers to the wooden birdhouse and then coated the entire project with Mod Podge as a sealer.
The little "Home Tweet Home" sign was computer generated on white cardstock, matted with pink cardstock and then tied on with some Doodlebug twine. The tree was cut twice with my Cricut and the layers adhered with foam adhesive squares. The little bird is adhered to the tree, and the tree adhered to the roof of the house with mini glue dots.

Hope you all are enjoying some nice Spring weather wherever you are!
