Birdhouse Perch


 Hobby Lobby's birdhouses are half off this week.
  Perfect for adding some spring -y-ness to my mantle. 
   

 

I spotted this tall black one on a high perch, and a low fleur de lis bird house.  They didn't have any in the middle.  Don't they say you need three to make it look right? :)


So, I headed over to the unfinished wood section.
 I picked up a birdhouse, a candlestick and a circular plaque. 
 I glued them together, primed, and spray painted the set black to match the others.


 

The black was looking a little boring, so I dressed all three up with some B&W papers.



I think I may go back for more. 
Oh the possibilities! :)

I always thought bird houses equaled country. You have proven me wrong. I love the black. I may have to borrow your idea. Just bought some Dollar Tree birds. Thanks for the inspiration.
