Do you ever see them flying? Of those very little little, sweet little birds? If you see them, I think, they're looking for tiny mini houses. So they can make a nest in those little birdhouses, lay mini eggs and cute mini baby birds are born.
Unfortunately I haven't seen them fly yet, not one, but at least their houses are ready for them.! :) So if you see them, show them the way to these cute cottages, do you want?
Together with girlfriend and children we have some papier-mache cottages decopatched. With cheerful, fresh Décopatch papers they are pimmed and decorated with a little flower or some sequins. The children found it so much fun to do! And say yourself, these mini birdhouses look cozy!
If in the end no birds come to live in it, at least it can not be due to the cheerful colors and beautiful decoration!
Do you also want to make small birdhouses beautiful for the mini birds? Below you can read how, what and where!
The colours of the paper come out best if you first paint the houses white. Of course, that does not necessarily have to be, but the result is a little more beautiful.
Tear the paper into pieces and stick it on, overlapping, with Decopatch glue/lacquer. The glue is also lacquer and dries transparently!
Stick whole faces the same color, or simply paste different designs together.
The papier-mâché cottages are about 8 - 10cm large and they are available as a set, so with 6 different cottages. For kids this is a fun activity. Decopatchen with straight planes is already suitable from 7/8 years and these cottages are very nice to decorate with them. Of course you have to do it first, but after that the children can let go of their own imagination.
Finally, paste some nice decorations like flowers or sequins just on with Collall Alslime.
The mini birdhouses and all the Decopatch paper/glue can be found HERE !

What is Décopatchen (Decoupage) ?
Décopatchen is a technique used in the past, by the French, by the poor. There was no money to buy new furniture or home accessories, but they wanted a new look in the house. By giving their old stuff a new jacket with plain paper and varnish, it seemed like they had a whole new decor. Old stuff was pimped up for little money, so actually.
Decoupage (Decopatch) is pieces of paper tearing and sticking to objects, decorating them according to your taste. Glue the pieces of paper overlapping. Then coat the whole with Decoupage glue/lacquer. The more layers of lacquer, the more beautiful the depth effect!
