One of my favorite places to shop is craft stores. I love finding new supplies and especially looking at the bargain area to see what great deals they have. A few weeks ago my older daughter saw this wood birdhouse and wanted to bring it home to paint it. I thought it would be a fun craft for her to work on during the summer, so this week I got it out for her. She loved looking through all of my paints to pick out bright, fun colors.
Wooden Craft Birdhouse ($1.50)
Acrylic Paints ( .50-$1.25)
My daughter had so much fun using this assortment of bright colors while painting her birdhouse. She planned out which colors she wanted to use on the different parts of the birdhouse.
After she finished the first coat, she went back and did a second touch up coat of paint.
It's amazing what some paint can do to transform a plain wood decor item into something fun!
