Old-Fashioned Birdhouse

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.
