Large Mosaic Birdhouse

This project started when I found this wooden birdhouse at a local thrift shop in Tybee Island. The asking price was $90.00.  👿 Oh, heck no! I really wanted it, so I offered $30. Soon, I was walking out with my new birdhouse.  😀

This is what it originally looked like with a few items attached to it, but I saw it as a blank canvas for me to mosaic.

It sat for almost two years, and I finally started the process, which you can follow in my next posts. My husband has offered many suggestions that, of course, I have ignored. One artist in a family is enough. He means well and did “bird dog” (i.e., find) many of the pieces I used on this birdhouse. He also graciously agreed to move it around many times until I decide its final place.


The house has some unique features such as the wood top.  And I like the horseshoe and perch.

Mosaic Birdhouse with Yellow Top

This bird house sitting in my garden measures 10 inches high and 5 1/2 inches wide.  I chose off white dishes for the body and yellow/orange for the top.  A whimsical bird sits on the perch.

I gave this bird house to my Mother-in-Law to give as a gift to her friend, Bev.  The house now sits in Bev’s pretty house in Ocean Isle, NC.
