I've seen these easy little bird houses on a few crafting blogs & as well for sale over the years & I wanted a fast & easy craft. The instant gratification kind. I had to choose between Peter Cottontail or the Pokey Puppy. Peter won out.

you can see at the top i had to add another piece & thought i'd go with more text...which shows that it doesn't match. but it's not as noticible in person.

still have several coats of mod podge to go, but wanted to share it now.

This is great! I've never seen these before. I can't see why they wouldn't be good for outdoor use if you gave them a few coats of exterior urethane.

thanks Wulf! i'm going to for sure do a few more of these & seal them really well for outside use. love the splash of color.

thanks butter_fly! all there is to it is a pre-made bird house (i bought this one for 4.99 @ Michael's) then pulling out one of the many golden books you may have on hand, cut out the pages & mod podge them onto the bird house. then glue the book base onto the roof. i did several mod podge coats then several more clear sealer coats. a super fast & easy project.
