Birdie Valentine

birdhouse get started

If you need a quick and easy Valentine craft idea (for a teacher, grandma, friend, etc.) this one is so cute and fun.

You need a little birdhouse, some trim, a few embellishments, and hot glue. That’s it.

I find this adorable birdhouse, with the heart cut-out at the local craft store for $1.99. I brought it home and gave it two coats of white matte spray paint.

I just loved the buttons and little rose.

Attach a card that reads, “A little birdie told me you’d be my Valentine!”
