I think spring has finally arrived and I am so excited!  Here is a fun little project that I thought was so perfect for welcoming spring. I was able to make it with scrap wood, so it didn’t cost me anything! All you need are some wood scraps, paint, and vinyl.
DIY Faux Birdhouses for Silhouette and Cricut | Spring Decor for Silhouette and CricutIn my vinyl cutting software, I resized the birdhouse to a size I liked. Then, I printed the pieces out and traced them onto my board. If your vinyl cutting software doesn’t print, you can also use a photo editing program to print it.
 Then, I cut out and sanded each piece, then I glued together the roof pieces.
I picked out some bright fun colors and painted all the pieces.
I used vinyl stencils to add some fun designs to each birdhouse.
After I painted in the designs, I removed the vinyl and added the stencil for the door border.

 Then, I painted the doors.


Once it dried, I removed the vinyl stencils, added white vinyl for the doors, and glued on the roofs.

These birdhouses would be cute hanging or sitting on a shelf or table.

I think they look so cute for spring!DIY Faux Birdhouses for Silhouette and Cricut | Spring Decor for Silhouette and CricutDisclosure: I was not compensated for this post, but will earn a small percentage for sales as an affiliate. As always, all opinions are 100% my own.
