Materials & Tools
Acrylic paint, blue
Pencil, eraser end (We cut ours with wire snips.)
Foam paint brush
1. Water down acrylic paint by mixing 1 part paint to 10 parts water. Paint the birdhouse with the watered-down acrylic paint and a foam paintbrush.
2. Bend the license plate in half and slide it onto the roof of the birdhouse to get the right shape. Glue it into place with flexible permanent glue like 100% silicone adhesive.
3. Remove the perching post on the birdhouse with pliers and replace it with the eraser end of a pencil, glued into place.
4. Using the glue, embellish the front of the birdhouse with flea market finds and hardware such as ball chain, watch faces, vintage keys, bike gears, and a keyhole.
Isn’t this a fun way to decorate a birdhouse? The best part is, you can use any flea market finds you like. Just have fun with it!
