  • Winter Birdhouse

    Last week, Trout shared a unique way to display birdhouses. It was so cute, I just had to copy/change this idea.

    I have been painting a snowmen puzzle, so I thought that a 3-D snowman would be cute. One just didn't look right next to the birdhouse, so I soon created a family.

    The bird house & birds are from Diana Thompson patterns. The snowmen, I created from free clipart. The ribbon, bow & presents were purchased from a craft store.

    Here is my winter birdhouse:

                      Thanks everyone for the kind words.

                            Adorable! Sure makes me wish I could paint. I love seeing all these different ways of using Diana's birdhouse patterns. I'm betting she does too!

                              Well, unfortunately, I have also decided to let my subscription lapse. I've been debating it for the past couple years. It isn't so much the money, but it's more the disappointment when yet another issue has so little in it that really appeals to me. The final straw was this past Fall/Winter edition...

                              Thanks to all !😀 Your comment are very good and make sense!

                              My piece is 8"X8" X 1/2" thick.
                              I though when I cutted the piece to do it in 1 piece or 4/5 , but after a while I decided to do it in one piece and carved it to have a 3D aspect.
                              Was it a good idea.....?...

                              Great designe! I would have gone a bit further than Linda, Scott and Gladefade I would cut it into more pieces to make shaping easier. Taper the clouds from right to left, taper the wings so that they are lower where they attach to the body. Taper the neck so that it looks like it is going into the...

                              The never ending dilemma. I only get two magazines SSWWC and Wood carving Illustrated. Even if I don't make something in every issue there is usually something in each one that I have never tried and that will either challenge or inspire me. Yes I know that I do test cutting for them and they have occasionally...

                              I would start by tracing your piece on a piece of 1/8" (3mm) material and then cut the back our such that it is a fraction smaller that your project. Then I would cut your piece into two pieces. I mean cut the angel from the cloud. I would then put the cloud on the 1.8" backer and then with...
