It is the beautiful bird which gets caged.

Remember the Camping Shower I am planning?  Well I found THE cutest little bird houses at Joann's for $1 and knew I had to get one (or several) for the shower decorations.  My husband was out and about so it was just me and the kids, so I thought this would be a great project for us.

We brought the bird houses home and had a blast decorating them.  The kids used paint.  I used scrapbook paper, mod podge and paint.  They worked so hard and did such a great job!

We decided our birdhouses needed birds.  I was going to freehand some but then decided that someone else probably already had done the work so I searched for sew a bird tutorials and came up with the perfect one!  The size was right and they turned out adorable! 

I think these will look great among the food at the shower:
Happy Party Planning
