Make a Christmas Birdhouse (via

I used to think birdhouses were a spring decor item.  And traditionally, they probably were considered by most to be a spring-y thing.  But I’ve always been one to break from tradition and do the unexpected, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise that I have come to appreciate birdhouses throughout the year!  This Christmas-themed example was made by Carissa from Carissa’s Creativity Space using a $1 birdhouse she found at JoAnn’s.  She trimmed it out with some gorgeous ribbon from May Arts – isn’t it fabulous?  (We’re also giving away 5 rolls of amazing May Arts ribbon – make sure you check it out and enter to win!)  [how to make a Christmas birdhouse]
