INSTRUCTIONS

NOTE: Allow to dry between painting steps.

  1. Paint the walls of the birdhouse Sea Glass with the 1/2" flat brush. Paint the roof and base Dark Chocolate with the same brush.
  2. Use sandpaper to distress the birdhouse by rubbing vertically and along the edges until the paint comes off in random areas.
  3. Rip off a small amount of the fake moss; remove three silk flowers from their stems and pull some leaves off of the flowers.
  4. Use a hot glue gun to glue on the moss, then the flowers, and then the leaves.
