Birdhouse Ornaments

 

Materials:

  • Small, wooden birdhouse ornament from the Dollar Tree
  • Americana acrylic paint by DecoArt in the following colors: Snow (Titanium) White, Burnt Umber
  • American Painter #10 flat shader (series 4300)
  • Super Thick tacky glue from Aleene's
  • Turquoise beads from FireMountainGems.com
  • 20-gauge wire from ArtBeads.com
  • A twig from outdoors
  • Wire cutters
  • Round-nose pliers
  • Chain-nose pliers
  • Flat-nose pliers
  • Garden shears

Instructions:

  1. Paint the birdhouse ornament with two coats of Snow White. Let dry between each layer of paint.
     
  2. Apply some Burnt Umber using a dry brush technique, and gently wipe away excess paint so that the white paint shows through. Let dry completely.
     
  3. Wrap some wire around a twig and create some fancy shapes with your round-nose pliers. I formed my wire to look like little flowers, and I added some turquoise beads.
     
  4. Glue the turquoise beads and the twig onto the birdhouse. Let dry completely.

Will birds nest in the large laundry jugs? To me these seem ideal, but then I'm not a bird. Thanks..imnrn
