Birdhouse Ornaments

In my post about yard sale treasures I mentioned getting some wooden birdhouse napkin holders.

I had no intention of using them for what they were intended for. Here is a before picture.

You are probably wondering why I would mess with these pretty napkin holders. Well I don't use napkin holders. So I decided to paint them and make ornaments out of them.

Step 1: Paint. It took several coats

Step 2: Going from top left -screw small eyelet in roof for hanging, top right - adding moss for nest, bottom left - adding snow, and bottom right - adding ribbon and greenery.

Step 3: Finished product

I love to craft and I am going to try to do crafting posts at least once a week. Bookmark me and come back and check often if you like to craft.
