Collections: Birdhouses


Hello everyone! We thought we'd start to share some of the things we DIY just for fun. Today I'm showing off my birdhouse collection. I never intended to start collecting birdhouses. I bought my first one on a whim because I just felt like painting something. Next thing I know, I'm gluing fake moss onto the roof of a hobbit hole birdhouse. And because I suffer from the compulsion to turn everything into a TARDIS, I went back to Michael's for the perfect TARDIS shape. Next was the house from Up. It just seemed like an obvious one to do, although I wish I had the patience to add more balloons. Click below to get a closer look and find out what the last one is!







It's Hagrid's hut! I threw Buckbeak the Hippogriff in there and made some pumpkins out of polymer clay. I really love painting these little birdhouses. It's how I unwind. I'm still trying to figure out how to make a Millenium Falcon or Serenity, but space ships are hard to translate to birdhouses. If anyone has any ideas for birdhouses I'd love to hear them!
