When I think about spring, “things coming back to life,” always seem to come up first. So what better way to celebrate the season than a colorful birdhouse, which can invite new life into any garden! Using some All Purpose Dots makes this a mess-free project for any age.
Made by: Grace Tolman
Time: Approximately 45 minutes including drying time
Level: Quick and Easy
Size: 12” x 3 ½” x 2 ¼”
- All Purpose Dots™
- Wooden birdhouse
- DecoArt Americana Paint- Bahama Blue
- Ink- Truffle, Mix'd Media Inx, ColorBox
Paint the birdhouse. (I used Bahama blue paint.) Set aside to dry.
Adhere buttons to the roof and the front of the birdhouse, using some All Purpose Dots. I made some piles of buttons on my work surface so I could easily grab the color that I want. I also tried to use a rainbow of colors to show the bright colors of the season.
Option: Stamp some leaves on the bottom of the birdhouse. I did so because it was looking a little bare to me. You don’t have to do this step if you do not wish to.

I’m a mom to a 10 year old boy and an 8 year old girl. Therefore my life is usually filled with learning, new discovery, bribery and driving to and from all of our activities. I have a loving and very supportive husband of 11 years. When the kids have gone to bed at night, my time is spent crafting while catching up on my favorite shows and movies. I also enjoy reading, window shopping, knitting and perusing blogs for inspirations. Three years ago we moved to Colorado from California and we are enjoying our new environment. I feel very inspired with my new home, my new scrapbook space and the mountain views. Although I’ve been doing some type of scrapbooking since grade school, I only started to scrapbook seriously after my son was born. When he was born I knew I would be staying at home with him but coming from a fast paced sales job I was afraid I would ran out of things to do during the day. Little did I know that with newborns you won’t have any time to do anything else. Anyways, after going through a basic scrapbooking class I was hooked and haven’t stopped scrapping since.
