Think Spring: Sweet Sorbet Bird House

Here is the second piece I created for my Think Spring Decor set...this cute little Sweet Sorbet Birdhouse.

I started with a 6" tall wooden birdhouse that I picked up from the craft store. I painted the edges that would not be covered in Sweet Sorbet DSP with acrylic paint. I used a shade as close to pool party as I could find. Then by measuring each area I wanted to cover, I cut the DSP to size. (This is the hardest part) Then I just adhered each section to the little house using Mod Podge.

Tip: I cut the side sections of the house a little wider than needed and applied those first wrapping the extra around the sides. That way when I applied the front & back sections I didn't need to worry about any gaps in the seams if I accidentally cut it a little too small.

I finished off my little bird house with a "home sweet home" sign cut using the Bitty Banner Framelits and a couple pretty roses made using the Spiral Flower Die.

Thanks for visiting today...I hope you'll come back to learn more about the next piece in my Think Spring Decor Set.
