Decorating Bird Houses – Ideas For Decorating

Sharing is caring!

This weekend we had another fun craft day that we spent decorating birdhouses. I found these cute houses for about a dollar each at my craft store. 

If you can’t get to the dollar store, you can get these items easily online – just check out my products list below. These also make nice gift ideas and certainly brighten up any space. 

Bird House Ideas For Decorating

These are fun to decorate and the ideas are truly endless.

 

Cute craft idea using wooden bird houses , scrapbook paper and washi tape!

We used a variety of scrapbook paper and washi tape to decorate these. I had seen some cute ones on Pinterest and thought that they would look so cute for a Mother’s Day tablescape or tea party to celebrate the season!

My mother made a really cute bird house display on her mantel.

We had so much fun making these and I do not know about you, but I am a huge washi tape fan. The unfinished wooden birdhouses are so much fun to decorate any time of year.

Decorating Bird Houses – Supply List

Directions:

1. Paint houses with acrylic paint and let dry completely. No need to paint the entire house, just the areas you wish.

2. Measure sides and roof of the house that is not painted and cut scrapbook paper or use washi tape. Washi tape is easier to use and looks just as cute! Use the Exacto knife to help trim as necessary if using scrapbook paper. If children are going to do this craft I recommend using washi tape only. It works great!

3. You can decorate with ribbon and sequins if you want as well. The ideas are truly endless.

4. Let dry completely before handling.

My mom has an actual craft room in her home, (it is my old bedroom – so fitting!), so I often take my supplies to her house when we have  our weekly craft day. I just had to share my cute little Creative Options® Two-Tray Craft Box carryall that I received from Creative Options!

I just love all of the optional compartments and how portable it is! It has two cantilever trays containing 13-24 adjustable compartments along with a deep storage. I first saw this at CHA where it was nominated for CHA’s 2016 Hot Product of the year!

What a fun project! I like that it's another excuse to buy washi tape. Also, that craft box is awesome :)

It's awesome! This is one of the first crafts Scarlet and Cassidy ever did together - painting a birdhouse. And now we get so many birds and we need more birdhouses! Time to paint.
