Dollar Tree Birdhouse Planter

I absolutely fell in love with this birdhouse planter when I came across it at the Dollar Tree! It is absolutely adorable, and I knew exactly what I wanted to use it for! I love when I find things that make instant crafting ideas pop into my head! Rather than having to sit and think of what I could make with it, the idea was just there and I couldn’t wait to get home and get it started! I hope you follow along with this Dollar Tree Birdhouse Planter and make one of your own too!

Supplies:

Dollar Tree Birdhouse Planter
Bird Napkin
Sage Green and White Paint
Antique Wax
Spanish Moss
Greenery and Small Flowers
Home Chipboard – Tim Holtz

First, I used the white paint on the backing of the birdhouse and the sage green along the roof, and the planter.

Second, I lined up the bird napkin to make it look as if he was sitting above the opening to the birdhouse. I then used Mod Podge to glue it down, and trimmed off the excess.

Third, I used another section of the napkin with a bird on it and lined him up to look as if he was looking up at the first bird. I then Mod Podged him down and cut off the excess.

Fourth, I lightly sanded around all of the edges of the birdhouse planter.

Fifth, I used Antique Wax around all of the edges including the birdhouse opening. I then filled the planter with Spanish Moss.

Sixth, I inserted some greenery and small flowers into the Spanish Moss.

Finally, I hot glued the “Home” clipboard from Tim Holtz onto the front of the planter.

Here is the final result, how do you think it turned out? I couldn’t be happier, it came out exactly how I envisioned it would. When ideas like this come to me and I find the perfect items to make it come to life, I just have to get it done! I hope you enjoyed this Dollar Tree Birdhouse Planter as much as I enjoyed creating it, and you’re able to give one a try too!
