Birdhouse Bling

By Laura Bray

This decorative birdhouse will look great in any romantic style home.  They would also make great centerpieces for a wedding shower.

Using Jacquard’s Lumiere 3D Dimensional Metallic Paint & Adhesive instead of craft glue on this project, ensures a seamless look to the application of the embellishments.

Materials:

  • Unpainted, wood birdhouse
  • Jacquard Lumiere (Pearlescent Turquoise, Pearlescent Violet)
  • Jacquard Lumiere 3D Dimensional Metallic Paint & Adhesive (Turquoise, Lavender, Pearl)
  • Flat-backed crystal embellishments
  • Vintage pearls
  • Purple paper flowers

1) Paint the body of the birdhouse with Lumiere Pearlescent Turquoise. Paint the trim with Lumiere Pearlescent Violet. Let dry.


2) Add beads of Lumiere 3D Dimensional Metallic Paint & Adhesive in Pearl along the trim and the body of the birdhouse.  While paint is still wet, press vintage pearls and crystal embellishments into some of the beads of paint. Go crazy! You can make your birdhouse sparkle as much you like! Allow to dry.


3) Apply beads of Lumiere 3D Dimensional Metallic Paint & Adhesive in Lavender to paper flowers. While paint is still wet, press crystals into beads. 


4)  Apply a large dollop of Turquoise Lumiere 3D Dimensional Metallic Paint & Adhesive to the areas where you would like to place the paper flowers. Press the paper flowers into the paint.
