How to Create a Candy Cane Castle Out of a Birdhouse
Bring a basic bird house to life for the holidays. HGTV Magazine shows you how.
Adhere vertical strips of red washi tape all over the house and trim the ends. We used 15-millimeter washi tape for the diagonal stripes and 8-millimeter for the straight ones. To make small pieces for the doorway and windows, place a strip of 15-millimeter tape on wax paper and cut — they’ll peel off easily. Attach washi tape to white vellum, then adhere vellum to the inside of each window with double-sided tape.
Cut a piece of red cardstock for the door and adhere with double-sided tape on the inside of the house. Hot-glue on a white bead for the knob, then hot-glue a mini wreath to the house.
