Cute birdhouse perfect for spring! I would probably find a birdhouse in a thrift store and do a "make over" on it, instead of building my own or buying one new. This idea is a nicely designed house that could be modified according to the paper and paint you have on hand. I really like the mix of using paint and paper on projects, it elevates them somehow into the super cool category of crafts. And of course it allows lots of flexibility for those of us who love to experiment. This would be a fun project to do with a group of friends who like to create. Add coffee and cupcakes to the party and you've got a nice time as well as a cute project to bring home!

YOU SHOULD HAVE DIMENTIONS FOR THE BIRDHOUSE, FOR THOSE OF US WHO "dyi"

Without dimensions this project falls short of being excellent!
