Valentine’s Day is technically a month away, and if your like me as soon as the Christmas decor came down the Valentine’s decor came out. Now, granted I don’t have bins and bins full of Valentine’s decor. I just have enough to fill the shelves above our tv. I made a few crafts last year; Frosted Valentine’s Day Vases, Valentine’s Stuffed Owl, Heart Shadow Box, Rosette Frame, Heart Garland, and lastly Mr. Woodsy made this amazing “Love” cut out using his scroll saw. These are the extent of my current Valentine’s decor, so with that being said I felt the need to add in a few more decorations to the collection this year. This craft project was also made last year, but I never had the chance to blog about it, so today I’m sharing with you an easy Valentine’s Day decor project that anyone can make!
-Paper Mod Podge, Sparkle Mod Podge, & Sponge Brush
-Valentine’s Scrapbook Paper & Exacto Knife
-Craft Paint, Brush, and Tray
First you will want to paint the edges of the birdhouse where the scrapbook paper will not cover.
I choose a light pink. Don’t worry if you aren’t the neatest painter (like me). The scrapbook paper will cover it .
Next, cut out your paper using an exacto knife. Then apply a generous amount of Mod Podge onto your wood birdhouse. Lastly, place the scrapbook paper on the birdhouse. Repeat these steps until your birdhouse is completely covered.
Once all the paper has been applied and the Mod Podge is dry I then applied a coat of Sparkle Mod Podge to the outside of the birdhouse.
