This is my before pics for 'PROJECT FRIDAY'.
This is a country three candleholder...the bottom is shape like a heart and decorated with ribbon and artificial leaves./flowers. I had some birdhouses that I thought I can take the candles off and add it to the holders.
First of all...I get this liquid heavy duty nails....Put in the Calking use to squeeze the glue. Be careful...the glue will stick together. If you get it on your hand...wipe excess glue off and wash you hand with soap right away.

Here are the birdhouses....glue gun and ready to start the project....Last week I've glue the tile on the candlestick allow the glue to dry....before I add the birdhouses. . You can get these tiles at Lowe's. Prices are between 58 cents to 1.98 depend on what sizes you get. The birdhouses was given to me as a gifts.. So I wanted to do something creative....So here we ready!...
I squeeze the gun trigger for the glue to come out....put it on the middle of the tile.....About a quarter size......
Then put this birdhouse on that tile...I move the house back and forth to smooth the glue was easy to do this to keep the glue off my hand....then I set it even ...side by side to get the house straight on the tile.........Same process on the sccond tile...... The candlestick in the middle between these birdhouses...
I just put a smill tile on it.
You will see it on the AFTER pics....
Sorry ...I forgot to take the pictures..
Ta-Da......just that EASY......Love It! This birdhouse .....I just put it on the tile by itseft...I didn't change the flowers/leaves.....They still ooks good!



I had a great time redorating this candlestick holders to this Birdhouse Villages......I just love it! So the next "PROJECT FRIDAY' is decorate my computer room with this Birdhouse Villages...... Hopefully I will finish the project......
The two birds....I purchases those at a shop in Franklin,TN.
The birdhouse handbag was made by ROSEMARIE....Yes she made this CUTE bag. Please go visit her EtSY SHOP........HERE
This birdhouse was given to me by my daughter for MOTHER DAY 2 years ago at Day in the Park.
Every year in May ....We have "Day in the Park" They have all vendors all over the United States to bring and sell their crafts. It's will also go with the project ....Birdhouse Villages.....

    for larger bird nests you can use: birch tree limbs (as i did)
    honeysuckle vines
    or any vine that is durable enough to bend in a circle. Please let me see your nest if you get it done!!
