Last year I made this little bird house plant decoration wondering how it would hold up. Even though my balcony is covered it still got a little dirty and the yellow paper faded. So it needed a little tender loving remodeling...

And here is the summer of 2013 version; covered with velvet ribbon and pom pom fringe...a little yellow polka dot butterfly and a snazzy button hole entrance...and to top it off, a tiny white bow.

A couple of close up shots of the sides and back.



  And here it is, in it's new location for the summer :)

Really Reasonable Ribbon - polka dot satin
pom pom fringe, bow, velvet ribbon - misc.
Ranger - Liquid Pearls
Helmar - 450

How precious! I love bird houses ( we have 5 outside made of wood, wine corks, and even ceramic) but I have yet to make one of my own...those pom poms are so adorable!
