A Bird House Wreath

When did summer get here?  I really can't complain, living in Arizona, we haven't had too many warm (hot) days.  I can't say the "H" word, because, we all know how warm it really gets - ha ha.  Anyway, I have had this wreath idea in my head for at least a year, maybe two.  I really did have a different picture in my head, but, I like it.





I bought all of these cute bird houses at Michael's about two years ago.  I got them when they went on clearance and bought quite a few.  I just lined them up and shot them with some white paint.


I painted the flat wooden wreath form too.  At first, I just painted the roof.  I used mostly chalk paint.  These are my favorite colors.


But, when I was playing around with them, they looked as if they were missing something.


So, I painted the bottom and about 1/4 of an inch up the sides a dark brown.  Then, I put a little Spanish moss in all the holes.



What do you think?  Looks pretty good huh?  I did this right before school was out when my little ones were out playing.  I just got an extension cord and glued away.



This is what happens when you try to do something with little ones running all around.  I think I had to kiss a couple of boo boo's and one may have required a bandaid.  Oh, I do live in the desert and cactus is a daily thing.  Yes, I had to get my tweezers :-o  The whole round thing I was going for just wasn't quite there???


I brought it in and took them all off, and, started again.


Much better.  I was playing around with a banner, what do you think?  Let me know, thanks.

Hope you are having a round great Monday.
