Hello there!!! It is hot and earthquakey here in SoCal but we're surviving ok. The kids....well, they're still driving each other (& me) crazy. Ha! Anyway, I had some crafting to do for my etsy shop so I decided that it may be easier if the kids have a project to work on too. Honestly, I didn't get too much of my own stuff done but it was fun to get crafty with them. Take a look at our supplies....
$1 unfinished wooden birdhouse from Michael's
$.77 craft paint from Michael's
f-r-e-e paint chips from Lowes.
First the kids painted their birdhouses.....
After that, I cut the paint chips into strips...
Final (messy) step - GLITTER!
I just dabbed on some tacky glue and let them shake on the sparkles...
We dumped off the excess and our houses were done :)
And here they are hanging from the tree in the backyard waiting for their new tenants :)
I didn't actually put any birdseed in there (or weed seed as my husband calls it) so they are just a cute backyard decoration swaying in the breeze.
Hooray for Summer & getting crafty/MESSY!
