Spring Button Birdhouse

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”



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.
