Love Bird House

Disclosure: I receive payment for referrals to Social Spark...and you can too! See below!
It's kinda loopy what a box of craft sticks and some wood glue can make. Those supplies "call" to me all the time, mostly because the Munchkin has a seriously huge supply of small plastic animals that need housing. I've made quite a few different buildings for Munchkin to use whilst playing with every last toy Safari ever made. Take this Rabbit Hutch HERE with a little polymer clay lop eared bunny I made to go with it. Sometime soon, I'll show you some of the other buildings I've made. But.....back to the Bird house. If you want to make something along these lines you're going to need a lot of:

And, some of these from the Dollar Store:
Then, you'll need some hot glue to hold them to their stand and some paint to do the very laborous process of painting the house. My process was even longer than most because, you see, I had this grand idea to spray paint. I thought....the GARAGE would be the perfect spot to do it because the fumes. I definitely did not want to spray it inside. So, I tried to apply a first coat and while I let it dry my husband came home........
He wasn't expecting a bird house on the floor, as you can clearly see. And, I know he felt really bad about it because the first thing he did was holler................."BRING YOUR CAMERA OUT HERE!!!" Yup, he always thinking of me. ;-)

So, I had to start from scratch. Good thing I love craft sticks and wood glue. Once painted the whole project looks a lot fancier than a pile of popsicle sticks. At least, it's fancy for me...

I also wanted to tell you about the awesomest blog advertising company out there:
