Paige told me “ he makes LOADS of birdhouses, using wood burning and paint to put on the designs. I wanted him to have something from ME, which means FABRIC. “
Using Tacky glue she attached the piping to the edges. Then cut her fabric just a tad lager than the walls (just enough to tuck under)
Look at this beautiful toile she used!
Let it set over night to dry..
& let dry over night
glued on at top using hot glue.
Any exposed wood she painted with wood paint markers… brown for the roof trim, and green for the birds perches
Touches of glue around the opening took care of any exposed edges
Red felt was glued to the bottom to prevent scratches
The only thing left was to welcome the new renters!
OK, Paige hot glued these cardinals into position.
I love the creative use of fabric & the contrast of the birds & print.
I think Paige’s Father~In~Law will be proud to add this Birdhouse To his Collection
