Welcome To Our Love Nest

Hey y'all! Happy Friday! I hope you have had a fabulous week so far! Any fun plans for the weekend? The hubby is taking me on a date today! Yay! Katie Scarlett will go to doggy daycare for the day. Then, I need to go grocery shopping and we are planning on staying in this weekend. Katie Scarlett has training class on Saturday, but other than that we are gonna chill. I am going to cook a roast, so that will be super fun and yummy! I hope all of you guys have a wonderful, relaxing weekend!

Now, on to the scrappy stuff! I have a new post going up over at the Creative Charms blog today and I wanted to share my project with you here as well. With Valentine's Day just around the corner, I decided to create something to hang by our front door. I purchased this wooden birdhouse at a local craft store for a dollar. I decided to make it into a little 'love nest' for the holiday. I began by spritzing the bird house with some pink Glimmer Mist. This not only added color to my birdhouse, but was a fast process. It was dry and ready to be embellished in a matter of minutes!

"Love Nest"

Supplies Used
Cardstock: The Paper Studio
Patterned Paper: K & Co
Alphabet Stickers: Harmonie
Glimmer Mist: Tattered Angels
Ribbon, Felt Embellishments, Brads, Rhinestones, Butterfly: Creative Charms
Adhesive: Helmar, hot glue gun/glue sticks
Other: wooden birdhouse
 For the front of my birdhouse, I added bling, alphabet stickers, and a beautiful butterfly.
 I replaced the original cording that came with the birdhouse with some cute ribbon from Creative Charms to act as my hanging mechanism.
 Here is the side view of the birdhouse. I decorated both sides of the house the same.
 Back of the birdhouse...
 And here is a closer view of the felt embellishments...
Thank so much for taking a moment to drop by my blog today! I hope you have enjoyed this project!

Have a fabulous weekend!
Happy Scrappin'!!!

What a cute birdhouse! It's great to spend time trolling for goodies at the dollar store. You never what you'll find that you can make into crafts.
