Litttle Bird House.
This weekend we had the big blizzard of 2016, and since I am stranded at home, I decided to make some woodwork. I had to make something small, because there was only small pieces of wood at home. First I sat with my cat to make the design. Then I made the pattern with paper, then transfer to the wood. And cut all the pieces of wood. After cutting they all needed to be sanded. After cleaning all the sawdust, I had a chance to have fun and paint whatever I wanted. One of the walls I planned to make in acrylic, and I could use some of glass paint I bought at Michaels. After dried, I glued all the pieces. I could not figure out a way the secure the house to hang in the tree, so I decided to hold the house with twines and a tree branch. And that extra branch gave me an idea, and I made two birds in polymer clay. I left one of the sides of the roof easy to open, so I can place the bird food inside. So hopefully the birds outside can find some nutritious food in my tree, in this cold winter. Come eat!!
