Anyhoo, I saw this cutie project over at the blog Sweet Little Smoothie. It's too cute not to make! I bought some birdhouses from Jo-Ann's (for a dollar each!) and readied myself for spookiness.
First, I took the little perch dowels out. They are not necessary for our haunted village.
Some popped right out and others needed persuasion. I gave them persuasion like they've never known.
And now, they're ready for their paint job. I painted them all black to start, leaving the roofs untouched... I painted them other colors.
I added some scrapbook paper to the roofs and made doors out of felt. To finish them up, I added some Halloween stickers.
Isn't it the scariest birdhouse village you've ever seen? It's in a good school system though, so the property values are OK. :)
