I felt craftier than usual on Sunday and decided to decorate a cute little camper bird house for our backyard. I bought a basic bird house in a camper shape, acrylic paint, some brushes, and some scrapbooking stickers.
Here's my stuff set up on our enamel table. I was careful not to get paint on it.
I already had most of the paint colors, but had to run out a second time for some black and the scrapbooking stickers.
A few hours of painting, sticker application, and more touch-up painting, and...
Voila! A tricked-out camper for the birds (namely, wrens).
Complete with screen window and cute decals—the one on the window sill says "Are we there yet?"
In happy-go-lucky colors
All sides were lovingly attended to, too.
Ah yes, home is truly paradise, isn't it?
I'm not sure why I'm suddenly in this weird creative-happy-energetic-optimistic-visionary phase, but I'm going with it, whether it means making goofy little bird houses or getting started on a children's book. I liked the feel of the brushes and paint, too. It had been so long since I painted (5-10 years) and I found that I missed it. Perhaps I'll dabble in paint for a while and see what happens.
Hope you liked the project, and Happy Wednesday!
