DIY Moss Birdhouses

I was browsing pinterest a couple weeks ago, looking for inspiration for a spring mantle.  I found a couple really cute things, and then some awesome Moss Birdhouses from A Diamond in the Stuff.  I decided to keep an eye out for wood birdhouses, and when I was at JoAnn’s over the weekend, BAM, there they were, right at the entrance…for $1 each!!  They have several different shapes and sizes, and I ended up purchasing the 2 most plain ones, because I wanted to do the moss on top of the roof.  These turned out SO cute, and the only thing I had to purchase was the houses ($2 total), and the ribbon moss (only $1.70 after coupon) because I had the paint and hot glue at home already.  Along with my Spring Banner, these little guys will be adorning my spring mantle which will be revealed later in the week!
