  • 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.

                      Tammy - the total height is a little over 6 inches. The tallest snowman is 2 1/4 inches.

                            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!

                              Now that's one to make us smile! I've been meaning to try that sometime but procrastinating simply because I didn't stop to consider starting on an easier design to actually learn from. Great reminder. I love your jack-o-lantern!
