Birdhouse Ornament



This Birdhouse Ornament from Liz Revit can be displayed all year long! You'll love the look of this unique Christmas ornament.


Birdhouse Ornaments



  • 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


  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.
