Upcycling Birdhouse-From Drab To Fab

(contains amazon affiliated links see disclosure in footer)
Good Afternoon dear readers,  I have a new craft for you today.  I took the birdhouse from the yard sale I picked up last weekend and upcycled and blinged it up.  This is my new favourite project from all the ones I've done.  This is really easy to do and I'll bet you have everything already in your stash. So here's a detailed list of what you'll need: Take your time and enjoy creating.

Birdhouse
Acrylic Paints
Spray Inks
Hot Glue Gun
Sandpaper
Pebbles
Beads
Little Key
Stick On Studs

Here's what it will look like when your done.

Here's what it looked like when I bought it.


I proceeded to sand the birdhouse down and started painting the walls with Bright Magenta.


I then painted the roof with Purple Iris need to apply two coats of paint.


I sprayed ink on the back for an over all drippy effect.


I touched up the metal flowers with similar colors to the original ones used.


Then I hot glued the pebbles to the base as well as the daisy beads to the birdhouse.


I placed the sticky studs, glued the key to the corner of the house and placed a crystal bead in the center of the main flower.  Voila your done.
