Hey everyone! It’s Day 4 and I am still alive! Today I am making these adorable little Dollar Tree Birdhouse Ornaments that have yet to be seen (well I haven’t seen any 😁) so you can imagine how excited I am.
CHECK OUT all of the 12 Days of Christmas here!
You can also watch all of these video tutorials as well on on the playlist and see these back to back on the playlist!
The best part about this is that Dollar Tree is currently flooded with these in the craft section because these are for Spring so you should definitely find plenty!
I chose these 3 different styles but they do have others as well.
In addition, I decided to give them all different paint jobs so that you can see several options.
I chose to paint 2 of the house “bodies” with my favorite white chalk paint and the other I decided to use my Rustoleum’s Aged Glaze that I have been using on everything lately to give one of the houses a stained look.
I also painted another house’s roof with the same aged glaze.
On that ornament, I also decided to also paint a red ticking stripe with some Waverly chalk paint.
Then on the house with the white roof, I wanted it to have the look of snow. So, I decided to use some school glue and add glitter to the roof. Once the glitter dried, I sprayed it with some Mod Podge Ultra in order to make sure the glitter wouldn’t fall off.
I added a few more details like this cute little bow from another Dollar Tree ornament that I didn’t use.
And I added some berries to the one with the black chalk painted roof. I wanted to create a wreath around the entrance hole.
Lastly, I added a little bit of greenery and some tiny berries to the last house.
Finally in order to hang them, I used the same hooks that I used on my glass ornaments and simply screwed them into the little roofs. I added some ribbon and that was it!
Aren’t these the cutest ornaments (besides my last ones 😉) ever?!?!?
And the possibilities with colors and accessories are truly endless…
I think the little bow on the one below was just perfect.
Which one of these is your favorite?
I hope you liked these sweet little ornaments and if you want, you can always watch the video tutorial on my channel!
I will see you in the next one.Until then…. adios!
