When I was at the Dollar Tree the other day I bought a bunch of floral moss. I just really love the looks of it! So for the next few weeks I will be doing a bunch of crafts using floral moss.. or at least that’s the plan. So if you follow me you may want to head to your local Dollar Tree and pick up a few bags of this type of moss.
For this craft you will also want to pick up a wooden birdhouse. My local dollar Tree did not have the style of birdhouse I wanted so I found these at the Dollar General. I suggest looking at your local Dollar Tree before heading elsewhere because that’s where they will be the cheapest.
- Kids Birdhouse ( I found this one at the Dollar General)
- White chalk paint ( I like wavily brand from Walmart)
- Waverly antiquing wax
- Paint Brushes
- Floral Moss ( You can find this at the Dollar Tree)
- spanish moss
- Hot glue gun & Glue Sticks
Step 1: The first thing you want to do is remove any stickers from the bird house and begin to paint it. Because the birdhouse I bought had a design on it, it required two coats of paint. Allow the paint to dry in between each coat.
(Below is a picture of what the birdhouse looked like before I painted it)
Step 2: Once the paint is dry you can antique the birdhouse if you wish. This step is completely optional but I personally love the antique look. To do this, I like to dip my brush in the antiquing wax and then brush most of it off on a paper towel. Brush your first few strokes somewhere less noticeable, like the back, until you get the hang of it.
Step 3: Once all the paint is dry you can then glue the moss on as you wish. I chose to glue floral moss on the top of the roof. I also put a little floral moss at the bottom of the birdhouse to add a pop of color. I then took small amount of Spanish moss and stuffed it in the opening to make it look like a birds nest.
