This is a birdhouse that I decorated for my sister for Christmas. I started with a blank, wooden birdhouse that I picked up at JoAnn's. Then I painted the entire surface with white acrylic paint. Once it dried, I used Mod Podge to cover the sides with floral paper (which is reminiscent of a red toile print than has special meaning to my sister). Then I inked every edge with Distress Ink and started embellishing. I found a great bird's nest from Prima and I added vintage lace and lots of rhinestone stickers. The crowning touch on the top is a felt flower with a pearl center. I think it turned out very nicely.
