By:

Welcome birds and fairies alike to your garden with this whimsical Fairy Wishes Bird House.  Embellished with colorful buttons, this cute bird house is perfect for both indoors and out.  This is also a great project to work on with the kids.  These cute button projects make wonderful rainy day craft ideas, and are perfect for those days when you're working your way through your craft stash, looking for cute and clever ways to use up your own button collection!

Fairy Wishes Bird House

Materials:

  • Wooden bird house
  • Buttons from Buttons Galore
  • Paints in the colors of your choice
  • Ribbon
  • Hot glue gun/glue sticks

 

Instructions:

  1. I used Folk Art paints from Plaid (the outdoor kind) and painted them both black then added white polka dots and a stripes around the bottom.  I made the polka dots big enough to outline the buttons I chose to use.  (Hint:  I taped the cording at the top with packing tape to keep it from getting painted on.)

  2. Then I made two layered buttons stacks in my Buttons Galore colors Candy Apple Green and Wild Raspberry and hot glued them to the centers of the white dots.  I LOVE these buttons because when they are custom dyed these awesome colors, the assortment of buttons used varies greatly in size and shape so there are always so many to choose from.  I saved my three favorite buttons to use last on the peg steps under each of the entry holes into the houses.

  3. Then to finish them up, I removed the packing tape from the cording and tied my favorite ribbon into bows on each then signed the bottoms with a silver paint Sharpie marker from my collection.
