A Sweet Tweet Re-tweet

If I were a bird, I would love to have this Sweet Tweet Re-tweet !

I saw this little birdhouse at the dollar store and instantly thought of a tassel.

Here is what I used:

Dollar wood bird house

Various paints – practiced my roses…

Yarn – left over from my daughters short crochet lesson


Fray tack – a must to seal those edges from fraying

Hot glue gun

Spice lid

Total cost – One dollar – as I had all the supplies….

From this:


To this:


My son said “Mom, the birds are NOT going to use that house !”

Well, duhhhhhhhh it is just another dust collector – perfect for Valentines Day !

Hugs ~ Kammy

Dawn said...

Kammy, it looks just gorgeous. I love your pretty roses on the birdhouse. What a pretty tassel. Hugs, Marty

Lori E said...

Well done Kammy.
I forgot that you are a tole painter too. The thing about these kinds of dust collectors is that you can swish it around and it will dust for you.

That is adorable and you did a great job painting the roses. A very pretty tassel. I might just have to make one for Valentine's Day to replace the Christmas one I took down.

Oh my goodness, you can do everything well, even paint roses! I love this idea, because it's so cheap to make! Only $1 for the house, and we all probably have everything else we need right at home. Looooove it!
