Easter Wooden Birdhouses

Download Activity Guide
  • These birdhouses can be decorated in a number of ways. Use the steps below as a decorative guide and mix up the techniques to create a unique combination of your own!
  • Step 1Assemble your birdhouse before decorating for easy construction. For permanent assembly you will need to glue the pieces together.
  • Step 2Paint your birdhouse bright colours. Allow to dry.
  • Step 3Cut up some tissue paper into small pieces. Coat your birdhouse in slightly watered down PVA glue and cover the birdhouse in tissue paper pieces.
  • Step 4Cover the area to be decorated with a light coat of glue. While the glue is still tacky, sprinkle glitter over the birdhouse covering the glue entirely. Allow to dry.
  • For less glitter wastage, use a scrap piece of paper folded in half to catch the glitter falling off the birdhouse while decorating. This will make it easy to tip the glitter back into the container ready to reuse!
  • Step 6Use a paint brush to apply paint to your stamper. Press the stamper onto the birdhouse, continue this process in a pattern to decorate your birdhouse.
  • Step 7We created our own stampers, take a look at our Foam Stampers to learn how to make some for yourself.
  • Step 8Decorate your birdhouse with sequins or stickers. Attach sequins with glue.
  • Step 9Use a marker to draw fine detail onto your birdhouse as a final touch.
