A Little Birdie...

If you didn't guess, my project for So You Think You're Crafty... was the valentine birdhouse!
The voting ends today, so if you like my craft, it would be nice to go on over and vote for me! The top ten make the competition.

Valentine's day is one of my favorite holidays. I think I'm in love with the frill of it, mostly. I remember when I was in grade school, the biggest thing was to come up with the best Valentine box. I wanted to make something that reminded me of that childhood craft, minus the tin foil and construction paper.

This Valentine box is a birdhouse! There is a door that hinges open and shut, and secures with velcro. The house is complete with windows, window boxes with flowers, curtains, and a fireplace (if you get close enough to see inside!)

The bluebird can have mail delivered right to his door by your little cupid! The valentines are kid friendly, with envelopes that actually open and secure shut with velcro. You can write your little ones all sorts of love notes to be delivered this Valentine's Day!


  1. Ooh, I love this and was wondering who made it! Very Very cute!!! I also love the felt food you have in the next post! fun stuff!

  2. I love this! You have my vote :) How did you make the hearts? It's yarn, right? What did you use as a base? I'm thinking I'm going to have to copy cat your creation!

  3. You are SO incredibly talented! I would love to do a feature of "Sweetie Pie Bakery" on my blog! Please let me know if you would be interested! I just LOVE your stuff!

  4. I love your blog and all the fun things you make out of felt. I fell in love with this sweet bird house. Do you think you will ever make a pattern of it?

  5. @Jessica-Thanks you :) I wasn't sure if there would be an interest in a pattern. I do have the house pieces drafted up so maybe in the future I'll put something together for it...
