Garden Birdhouse Scene

Good Sunday morning.  I have a birdhouse project to share with you today using the new Sizzix ScoreBoards Birdhouse.  I used Ellen’s Craft-a-Board to make the house and painted it with Distress Crackle Paint. I was very surprised by how fast and easy this little house went together.  It only took a few minutes.  It was what I did to it after that that took a long, long time.  LOL!

I assembled the house and painted it with white picket fence crackle paint. I painted the roof with shabby shutters crackle paint. I heated both sections with my heat gun as I am always too impatient to wait for the paint to dry on it’s own. I attached the roof to the house to complete.

Decorated House

I decorated the house with Impression Obsession Door and Window set and grass, foliage and flowers. I cut one window in half to fit on both sides of the door and added one on each side of the house.  I couldn’t resist adding tiny crimped blinds and finishing the windows with floral foliage and flower sprays.

I created a base for the house by cutting a piece of cardstock, scoring all four sides, cutting out the corners, folding all the sides up and securing with small strip of cardstock attached to each corner.


I cut several sections of Impression Obsession arched fence, grass border and My Favorite Things fresh cut grass. I cut out a small section of the front base wall for the fence gate opening. I attached the fence sections together and then attached all around the base of the house. I followed by adding the grass border sections on top of the fence and finished by attaching the fresh cut grass. I cut a piece of green cardstock and attached in the base and attached more fresh cut grass around the inside base. As an afterthought I added pieces of the Memory Box grand oak to the inside of the fence line to add softness and garden feel to surround the house.


If I ever do this again I will add the tree sections and then cover with the inner grass border to cover the trunk sections for a more finished look.

 I hope you have enjoyed my Garden Birdhouse Scene.  Have a great day and thanks for stopping by.

  1. OK, I don’t know what to say about this! This is my absolute favorite birdhouse. I love every little detail on it. I would love to have one for my craft room but I only have a cuttlebug and I don’t think the birdhouse will cut in it. Plus I could never make it look like yours. This is just fabulous!

  2. Kittie, this little birdhouse is just darling! I’ve always loved your creations and this one is no exception. I think my mother-in-law would love something like this to sit on her shelf. She is 82 and alone now, but still loves to watch the birds outside her window. Thank you for sharing this sweet little creation today.

  3. Your little house and garden are so sweet! Your work never fails to amaze me. Each piece of paper you add to a project or card is always treated somehow to make it a piece of art.
    Thank you for always sharing and inspiring! 🙂

  4. Absoutely beautiful! All of your creations are wonderful, but this has to be my favorite. I am in awe of your work!

  5. O, Kittie, what a gorgeous house that I want to live in it, listen to the birds and create something beautiful….
    Thank you for visiting my blog and for the lovely comments, I am very pleased that such experienced master as you appreciated my work. Always glad to see you in my blog!
    Best regards, Olga

  6. Oh my gosh Kittie! I was looking through Pinterest and came across this birdhouse. Gasp- it is so perfect! I designed that die and never imagined it could look so great. Thanks… off to share!
