Bird Houses

 I loved these little bird houses from the first moment I saw them and just knew that my 2.5 year old would as well! She is THRILLED. I accidentally cut one of the birds the wrong facing direction so I just added her into the inside of the top birdhouse. Sometimes your mistakes end up making your project what it is!

Tip: I used my hot glue gun to adhere all of the pieces of the bird houses together to give it extra stability. It really helps if little people are going to be playing with your project.

So most of the time I emphasize dies as the front and center of my project. This time I made them the “added bonuses”. One of the dies that I used was the Easter eggs. I glued them all together and then glued them to the inside of the bird house hole. Love it. 

I also added some of the Sweet Flower Die Set flowers to the tree branches and finished them with enamel dots.

Lastly, I thought my bird house needed a little heart so I grabbed one from the Through The Year Die Set. So cute, right? Tip: Don’t forget to add little dies to make your projects really pop!
