Sister Craft Day ~ Mosaic Bird Houses

Happy Wednesday everyone!

Today is the last day of April already!

Wow! Time is flying by this year because we are having so much FUN!

Melanie and I just completed another easy and FUN project that we picked to do together for a sister craft day!

I LOVE doing crafts with Melly!

She always has the best ideas!

It all started with two wooden bird houses she found at Joann's for us to make into mosaic treasures!

After she told me about them, I quickly went to to shop for tiles and glass pieces for us to glue onto them.

I found a great shop called Glass by Sarah Allen and purchased the little ceramic tiles and broken pieces of stained glass.

We glued them on with Elmer's glue and then after the glue dried we simply grouted and painted them!

Melly found us some wool spun mushrooms and little gnomes to glue on the grassy area around the house and Voila!
They were done!
I just LOVE how they both turned out!

This one is mine...

...and this one is Melly's!

Here are some photos we took of the process for you to enjoy!

It is so easy and FUN to do!

Thank you Melly for thinking of this great project for us to do together!

What FUN things are you up to as the weather warms up outside?

Have you started gardening or planning any Summer trips?

Please leave us a note and let us know!

We cannot wait to hear all about it!
