Hi there, my grandaughter Ella-mae has just had her bedroom refurbished in princess pink.She's had a new bed, pink desk and chair and many other little bits and bobs! So i decided to make her a little something for her new bedroom.When i came across this little birdhouse in Hobbycraft, i could not resist it. Especially as it is getting near to easter and spring is just about popping its head out !!! As you can see, i put lots of 'bling' on it ....! I applied Gesso to the ouside, before painting it with acrylic paints.I used a beautiful fabric which i glued to the roof. I made many punched flowers to decorate it ! I used gems, glitter and lace and popped the little Easter chick in the hole at the front, then i added the mini eggs and rosebuds for the 'garden'.Finished it off with an iridescent bow and a large heart embellishment on the back!! I do hope that this project inspires you !!!!! I'VE ENTERD THIS PROJECT INTO THE FOLLOWING CHALLENGES
