Off the Page: Quick Quotes Nautical Birdhouse



Alicia here today with a nautical themed bird house.  I used the Anchors Aweigh collection along with some nautical embellishments to create this lovely home decor.  I have the perfect person in mind to gift this object d'art.  I think the colors and nautical theme are a perfect match.

I started by chalking the edges I was going to leave exposed.  I also chalked the interior of the hole so it would not be bare.  It was refreshing to chalk this instead of paint and the drying time saved was a fantastic bonus.  


I cut and measured paper for all the sides.  I marked where the holes were and cut them out before chalking the all the paper edges and adhering to the bird house.  I used a paper straw as the perch.  I found the perfect metal porthole to embellish the hole. I cut and layered some papers, added anchor stickers placed on all four sides.  I shaped a strip of paper to layer on the bottom.  Finally, I added a little washi tape to some of the edges.


I hope I have inspired you to create your own beautiful home decor with paper!  It was really easy and fun to create.
