Easter Bird houses, how to
Neon & Pastel bird houses steps 1-4
Paint house roof with white paint, and leave to dry. Paint base, perch and underside of roof and edges in neon yellow paint and leave to dry.
Starting on the outside edge of the roof, carefully stick lines of masking tape to roof. Trim off any excess.

Carefully make a pattern for the front and back of the house. Trace the pattern on to printed paper and carefully cut out. Stick a ring sticker where perch hole needs to be and cut out centre. Apply pva glue to front of house and place printed paper cut out piece on to front of house, carefully smooth down paper. Repeat with back of house. (I used a ruler to get into the point at tip of roof).

Using a craft knife carefully cut out hole in centre of house.
Make a pattern for the sides of the house and cut out in printed paper. Apply pva glue to side of house and place printed paper cut out piece on to side of house, carefully smooth down paper.(I used a ruler to get under the roof) Repeat with other side.
Coat house with PVA glue in sections and leave to dry - this ensures that they do not stick to the surface you are drying them on.
