Mixed Media Birdhouse

Hi All,
Chitrali  here! Today I am on the blog with a shabby chic mixed media home decor Birdhouse with limited supplies. As we all are in a lock down situation, we may not have lot of supplies, so I wanted to create something with whatever supplies that are  available with me right now.
I’m using waste materials like, a broken cup, old plastic containers, cardboard, foil roll etc.

We know this month the star product for the Blog Challenge is Little Birdie handmade flowers. So, Please make unique items using the gorgeous handmade flowers and take part in his month’s blog challenge.

Itsy Bitsy Blog Challenge#28 – “Anything goes using Little Birdie Handmade Flowers”

Let’s start

Step -1
I took waste containers,  a cup, and a foil roll.

Cutting center part

Applied white gesso on each of the bases base.

One of the container is covered with corrugated sheet and pink acrylic paint is applied  on it.

Mixed green sawdust with Little Birdie decoupage glue and applied it on the circle base and the container.

Made one nest to using Little Birdie black coconut fibers.

Fussy cut some flowers and birds, butterflies from Little Birdie Par le Jardin printed linen paper.
After fussy cutting, distressed all the cut elements with Walnut distress ink and embossed  all the flower, leaves, birds to create a natural look.

Got handmade flower Elsie pearl pink and Little Birdie mini embellishment flowers ready for use.

Arranged everything and adhered the bird, nest, butterfly,  leaves & the handmade flowers with glue.


  • The final Outcome. I thoroughly loved making this project. Pictures aren’t enough to describe the beauty of the bird house.
