Birdhouse frame home decor piece

Hello Mod Podge Rocks readers! I am Lindsey, and I craft over at Inspiring Creations. I am so excited to be here sharing my birdhouse frame! I love Amy’s blog and I especially LOVE Mod Podge. I love crafting, but I also have a very small budget – so I try to make things that are inexpensive but super cute. I love decorating for the holidays, so you will find a lot of holiday crafts over at my blog as well as recipe reviews, and a ton of tutorials! I hope you stop by and check it out sometime. Today I am going to show you how to make a Mod Podged birdhouse with frame.

I found some great wood birdhouses over at Michael’s a couple of weeks ago and they were only a dollar. So I picked up a few and have been wondering what to make with them. Well, I finally figured it out and I decided to Mod Podge them!! I can’t tell you how much I love working with Mod Podge. It is so easy to use and you can use it on just about anything.

Let’s get started! Supplies needed:

  • Wood bird house
  • 8 x 10 black frame (I had an old frame I painted black)
  • Antique white paint
  • Scrapbook paper
  • Mod Podge
  • Distressing Ink
  • Hot glue

Step 1: If your frame isn’t black, paint it!

Step 2: While your frame is drying, Paint your bird house with the paint of your choice, I used antique white.

Step 3: After your house is dry, distress it with some distressing ink! And then it’s time to measure the dimensions of the sides, front, and top of your house! Once you have measured these, cut your paper to fit.

Step 4: Apply a thin layer of Mod Podge on your house then lay your paper over that and apply another layer of Mod Podge to seal the edges.

Step 5. After your Mod Podge is dry, hot glue the rope to the back of your frame.

How easy is that? Only five steps!!!! I love how it turned out and it was so simple, anyone can do this. Thanks Amy for letting me guest post today. I hope you all stop by Inspiring Creations and find some inspiration of your own!!

    Lindsay! That is so cute! I LOVE how you have it hanging from a frame! That makes all the difference in the world!

    This is so cute! I would never have thought to display it in the frame like that, and now a whole vista of decorating possibilities is opening up for me. :)

    Adorable! And I love the paper and the way it matches to the black frame but isn’t too dark looking. Great project, thanks for sharing!

    My mother is a nut for birdhouses but she has ENOUGH already. But I am making this for her for Mother’s Day because it is such a unique twist.

    Love it! I bought two wooden birdhouses last week at JoAnn’s, and they are queued up ready to be podged and embellished!
