Winter Wonderland Holiday House

Posted by DecoArt on Nov 10th 2014

Combine a birdhouse with Americana Acrylics to build a “be it ever so humble” holiday accent.


    • scissors
    • sponge brush
    • small craft paintbrush
    • 3/4" flat brush
    • hot glue gun and glue sticks
    • thick white glue
    • small wooden birdhouse
    • 6" x 3.12" oval basswood plaque
    • artificial snow
    • scrapbook paper
    • holiday miniatures


    1. Using a sponge brush, paint the entire top of plaque Snow White.
    2. Using a 3/4" flat brush, paint the front and back of the birdhouse Slate Grey.
    3. Using a 3/4" flat brush, paint the roof and bottom lip of the birdhouse Snow White.
    4. Cut out two pieces from the scrapbook paper that will fit on either side of the birdhouse. Apply the paper panels to the birdhouse with white glue and a small paintbrush.
    5. Hot glue the birdhouse onto the basswood plaque toward the back. (See photo for placement.)
    6. Using a sponge brush, apply glue all over the roof and ground outside of the birdhouse. Sprinkle artificial snow on top.
    7. Hot glue holiday miniatures around the house. (We used trees and a snowman.)
