I covered several birdhouses with dictionary pages late last year....and there they sat.  Until I saw this post on Angie's blog, Hopemore Studios.  I was inspired to get them out and play around with them.  I added some bits of lace, buttons, and textured clay to each house. Each one got a tiny bird sticker too. I like how they turned out.  I call them WORDhouses!!
Angie's wood houses are amazing.  She has several listed in her Etsy shop....this is my favorite.
Thanks for the inspiration Angie!!
