Everyone have a good weekend? The weather was still a bit cold and windy to spend much time outside, the grocery shopping was done and the house was clean. It was one of those weekends to putter so I went to the craft closet to see what I could do and not spend a dime.
I have a big basket of wood pieces that I’ve slowly been whittling away at. Not too long ago, I shared my button boxes which was another small project I was able to complete with items I had at home already. Today, I want to share with you my Penny Roof Birdhouse.
As I said before I have a big basket of wood objects so not yet knowing what I was going to do I just primed a bunch of birdhouses and a few candlesticks. Then I decided on the birdhouse on stilts.
I used some copper metal spray paint, ACE brand was on my garage shelf. I covered the roof in pennies. Here’s a bit of a look at the roof. The left side is still bare of the pennies and the other side still needs a layer but you get the idea, right?
I added 3 layers of pennies to the roof, then used a blacker painter pen to color the eves. I also found an old scarf ring in a bowl full of old jewelry, took out the crossbar, sprayed it with the copper color and used the black painter pen again to add some lines to it.
Here’s some more pics…
Happy Monday all! Did you do any crafting over the weekend?
