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. 

 


My newest mosaic birdhouse!

The anticipation of spring inspired me to make this whimsical birdhouse!  I repainted the bird to match and filled the house with lots of pretty china, buttons, beads, polymer clay objects and rocks.  I love the mischievous smile on the bird’s face.  Cool
