A Cute Birdhouse for Spring by Echoes of Laughter

Surprise Me!

Hello Skip To My Lou readers! My name is Angie and I blog over at Echoes of Laughter. I have a passion for sharing ideas for crafting, decorating, organizing and cooking and I love filling my home with happy memories! I am delighted to be here today to share this cute craft with you. Since Spring is only days away now, I was inspired to make some sweet birdhouses to celebrate. Where I live, we have had snow on the ground since October and I am anxiously waiting for Spring to arrive! This birdhouse project  would be a terrific activity to make with little people, or a group of girlfriends. These colorful houses would be so fun to hang on branches in a vase for an Easter or Spring Decoration, or  you could make a group of birdhouses to turn into a mobile for child’s bedroom.
