by Emma Trout

Supplies List:

Brads- Making Memories Love Notes (Vintage)

How to:
Remove the string holder on the top of the birdhouse. Paint the base of the birdhouse green, the roof red and the sides of the house white. Leave to dry.
Add glitter glue to the green base and allow to dry.
Cut ‘teardrop’ shapes from the Red Glitter paper and add to the roof. Start from the bottom and add in lines across, working your way up to the top. Finish by adding a folded rectangle along the top to hide the joins. Glue Crochet pink lace and pearl string around the edge.
Glue a piece of Red Glitter around the base of the house followed by Love Bird Scallop, ribbons and ribbon slides. Finish with hearts and dots from the foil alpha. Decorate chipboard people and add to the front of the house.
Cut polka tag from brad packaging (the advertising piece) and glue onto a wood skewer. Add tiny alphas and push through the roof where the string hole is. Add wire and card spirals.
Finish by adding a red heart frame and pearls, grass tufts cut from card and pink flower gems on wire ‘stalks’.
