Off the Page with Alicia!

Alicia here today to host the blog today.  I have a nautical themed bird house to share with you..

I used the Anchors Aweigh collection along with some nautical embellishments to create this lovely home décor. I have the perfect person in mind to gift this object d'art. I think the colors and nautical theme are a perfect match.

I started by chalking the edges I was going to leave exposed.  I also chalked the interior of the hole so it would not be bare.  It was refreshing to chalk this instead of paint and the drying time saved was a fantastic bonus.

  • I cut and measured paper for all the sides.  
  • I marked where the holes were and cut them out before chalking the all the paper edges and adhering to the bird house.  
  • I used a paper straw as the perch.  
  • I found the perfect metal porthole to embellish the hole.
  • I cut and layered some papers, added anchor stickers placed on all four sides.  
  • I shaped a strip of paper to layer on the bottom.  
  • Finally, I added a little washi tape to some of the edges.
