Colourcraft Winter Wonderland Altered Birdhouse With Expand It

Hi all 

I am back up on the blog today with a very snowy altered birdhouse.



Glue the birdhouse together and then paint with gesso or cheap white acrylic paint. Unless you want  to stamp onto the surface it is easier to glue the item together and then paint it. It you paint the parts before gluing it together then the parts might not snap together correctly.



Mix white gesso with Turquoise Brusho Crystal Powder and paint over the birdhouse. Next use a crackle paint  over the top to get the cracks. I then used Pear Aztec Eco Metallic Luster as the final layer to give it an icy shimmer.


Take a palette knife and spread Expand it over the top generously . I then sprinkled on some glass glitter but anything fine and sparkly will work too. I then heated it with the heat gun and watched the snow form.


I then painted more Pearl Eco Metallic luster over the top.



The icicles are created by using a hot glue gun and squeezing the glue onto a non stick surface. It can then be peeled off and glued to the edge of the roof.

Thank you for visiting.
