Altered Christmas Birdhouses


Good morning paper crafters!  Hope you all had a fabulous Thanksgiving.  We had our son and his girlfriend over and really enjoyed spending time with them.  Here's a photo ....


I don't know about you ... but I"m still stuffed from all the food we ate.  We cooked on Friday instead of Thursday so the kids could spend Thursday with Jenna's family.  I tried a new recipe this year ... pumpkin cake.  I don't eat pie and we have always had pumpkin pie in the past.  So I thought a pumpkin cake would be a good idea .... or was it .... I can't stop eating it, teehee.   Now we are taking all the fall decor down and getting the Christmas decor up.


So today I want to share some altered Christmas birdhouses I created.  

I have a detailed step by step tutorial on how I created one of them posted with my Altered Valentine birdhouses HERE.  


All the patterned paper is from my stash.  A lot of the cardboard embellishments I used are from K& Company from last year.  The Holly Flourish die I used above is by Cheery Lynn Designs.  The birds used on the first 3 houses are stamp images.



The word "peace" above is by Maya Road and these chipboard Christmas Words are still available HERE.


Hope you are inspired to create some altered birdhouses of your own!
hugs, Melisa
