How to Create a Wrapping Paper Cabin Out of a Birdhouse
Bring a basic bird house to life for the holidays. HGTV Magazine shows you how.
Paint the base of the house green with crafts paint. Let dry.
Create a template for covering the front. Cut strips of printer paper to fit the front upper and lower sections, making sure they reach in corners and around the trim and window. Remove and use to trace the shapes you need on wrapping paper. Do the same for the back, sides and roof.
Working on one section of the house at a time, brush on a thin layer of decoupage glue, such as Mod Podge, and press on the same-shape piece of wrapping paper. Smooth to remove bubbles, let dry and trim excess with a crafts knife. Brush on another layer of decoupage glue to seal. Let dry. Do the same for the trim.
