DIY Birdhouses

IMG_2996I have lots of reasons to be excited about getting married in July, but one of the most delightful things about being engaged is that I have an excuse to make crafts (aka “wedding decorations”) whenever I want, even if it means procrastinating on schoolwork or shirking my other various duties. I figure this is the only time I’ll be able to craft with abandon, for a rightful cause.

I just finished refinishing these five wooden birdhouses with patterns and colors that fit into my wedding theme. I don’t know exactly what I will use them for yet; possibly centerpieces…or something. Whatever works.
