Christmas Mini Birdhouse

Still loving these mini birdhouses!  I had really hoped to do up a little village of them, but that’s probably going to have to wait until next year, lol!  But at least this one is done, and I have one more almost done.  All the papers on this one are from American Crafts (from last year’s collection, or maybe the year before?).  I pulled out one of my ancient deco-edged scissors for the roofline.  All the little felt embellishments are also from American Crafts.  Scribbles made quick work of adding little “ornaments” to the trees and wreath.  I also added fake snow from DecoArt.  This comes in a little tub and has “flakes”, for lack of a better term.  It’s a little awkward to work with – you need to apply it with a palette knife or something similar.  But it’s much sparklier than the photograph shows – really a fun product.  I was thinking it would make a cute ornament as well if someone wanted to add a hanger to it.  I actually ended up donating this to the little girls next door’s school holiday fundraiser sale.  I have no idea what price they put on it, but their mom came home at lunchtime and said it had sold almost immediately so that made me happy!  I hope whoever bought it enjoys it!
