Birdhouse Spring Decor Idea

Today I’m joining several of my super creative blogger friends to share birdhouse spring decor ideas for this round of the Pinterest Challenge, hosted by Cindy at County Road 407.  

If you’ve hopped over from French Ethereal, welcome! I’m so glad you’re here to see my version of this lovely inspiration photo from Doreen at Hymns & Verses.

Isn’t Doreen’s tablescape using this birdhouse centerpiece just lovely? I loved it so much I was just itching to create something similar for my own home, but…… I didn’t have a birdhouse. 😕

My Spring Birdhouse Decor Idea

After perusing the offerings at Hobby Lobby, I was pleased to come home with this unfinished wood birdhouse, plus these beautiful glass cabinet knobs. Bonus: everything was 40% off, adding up to only about $10! 🎉

Creating the Birdhouse

My sweet husband helped me out by going out into the cold garage and cutting the little wooden dowel perches off the birdhouse, so I could replace them with the much prettier glass knobs. After he had them sliced off, he drilled down through the center to make holes for the screws.

Because I was planning to paint the roof of the birdhouse copper, I wanted the center screws of the glass knobs to be copper as well. I just poked them into a foam packing insert from the recycle bin to make them stand up, and gave them a quick spray of Rustoleum Universal Hammered Copper spray paint.

I taped off the top of the birdhouse well, using Duck Blue Painters tape, and then wrapped the bottom of the birdhouse with a brown paper sack, to protect it from the copper spray.

I placed the birdhouse inside a box from the recycle bin, to keep any overspray contained. Then, I gave the roof a light spray of copper paint, let it dry about an hour, and gave it a second coat. I love how the Rustoleum Universal Hammered Paint dries with a bit of texture to it, instead of a smooth gloss. It was perfect for the roof of my birdhouse.

I removed all the tape and brown paper, gave the body of the birdhouse a quick coat of white paint, and added my glass knobs with the now-copper screws. Isn’t it cute?!

FYI: Since my birdhouse is not going outside, I just used white craft paint.

    CONGRATS – excited to share that you are our featured Friend of the Week! 🙂

  2. I have such a fondness for bird decor year-round. Thank you for sharing your pretty birdhouse Spring vignette with us at the Snickerdoodle Party. You are being featured this weekend. Wishing you a beautiful Easter weekend, Niky!

  3. Great project. And you can enjoy it all summer too. I just adore birdhouses. It must be from my years of studying and working in architecture and design that I am a geek over miniature little houses for the birds. Thanks for sharing this post and I will visit some of the other bloggers as well. #HomeMattersParty

  4. Niky, you really gave the birdhouse a super update. Would have never thought of adding the crystal knobs. It looks so pretty on the kitchen counter in your pretty basket. It will be a lovely thing to enjoy for spring.

    1. Thanks so much, Kim! I literally just left the grocery store and guess what? I was perusing a magazine and saw your lovely greenhouse and garden! How exciting! So happy for you! 🌺🌸🌷🌹🍃

  5. Way to go Niky! I love the added copper roof and knobs. Your challenge turned out fabulously and has such a happy spring vibe. I know you’ll enjoy it for weeks. Thank you for joining in. This was so fun.

  6. Wonderful job, Niky! I love how you painted/modified your birdhouse. I actually used a knob from Hobby Lobby as an accent on mine, too! I think our two houses could be cousins. What a great idea to do a side-by-side comparison. You nailed it!

  7. Niky, your birdhouse turned out beautifully! I love the copper roof. 🙂 Mine was made years ago now but it was fun to make and then share this time, too. Happy spring to you and enjoy your sweet birdhouse vignette!!!

    Barb 🙂

  8. You did a great job of painting your birdhouse and updating the dowels with knobs. The vignette you created is perfect for spring and it looks great on your kitchen island.

  9. I really love how you makeover your birdhouse, so pretty and the glass knob is such a great addition. Your tray is right on with the nest, flowers and pretty greenery. Love it.
