Chirpy, chirpy Christmas *

Hi all - just a quick post this time and to share with you a bird house I altered for my Christmas display.

I covered the house with left over christmas backing papers and then painted with media paint that can be wiped back.  I am afraid only a few areas can be seen and mainly on the roof area.  was worth a try and did not let it deter me to carry on.  I used a plastic glittery tree for the side, painted it roughly with same media paint and decorated it with a few random beads and gold pearl stringy stuff from my tin of bits and pieces.  I had a spare robin and sliced and diced him so he would sit just right against the house.  I used berries, cones, bells and fir tree branches from previous decorations I bought from a pound shop.  I just love pound shops lol.  Now for the pics.
