    Birdhouse Ornaments

    I made a couple of birdhouses that a friend of mine had requested that I make for her grandkids for Christmas. I needed to get pictures before the birds went on because she is on her way to get them. She wanted pink and purple for her granddaughter Kaitlyn and wanted red, blue, yellow Kansas University colors for her grandson Rhys. He is a big KU fan. I used some burning on the roof to make it look like old shingles and on the other which you can see to well it has swirls on the roof. She was just ecstatic about them. She wants two more for a neice and nephew. She told me on these to surprise her but did want them colored. Not much but a ton of fun to make.
