Did you ever go through phases where you get so wrapped up in making crafts
that you can't stop yourself?
This Wednesday Whimsy post is the first of three crafts that I got carried away with.
These are cheap $5 bird houses that are available at michael's or ac moore.
The first 3 pics are bird houses that aren't for birds but for plants.
First thing to do is take off the tops, reshape them, then put back on.
Now it's time to be creative and paint the houses, which I really enjoyed.
It's a simple craft which I'd never seen done before.
Finally, a liner is needed, so off to the dollor store for plastic containers to put inside and wallah...a planter.
It makes for a fun gift.
The bird house on the right is taken from my "angels dance" theme but it reads differently because I made it for a loved one who only grows veggies. Also rebuilt this house so it would last outside for years.
