Christmas Birdhouse Decoration Craft Ideas


Our crafty team here at the littlecraftybugs company had a competition to decorate some of our popular paper mache birdhouses for Christmas. They came up with a huge range of ideas and we've shared them here to inspire you.

Here's a few of the ideas listed below, but take a look at the pictures for more festive inspiration. Have fun and embellish your birdhouses with eveyrthing from paint to decopatch, glitter to bird seed...

  • Bird Seed - Cover your birdhouse in glue and stick on some bird seed. Embellish to suit the season.
  • Pom Poms - Create a colourful design with some festive pom poms
  • Sweets - Looks like a gingerbread house. Although they might go sticky after a while and take care around young children.
  • Glitter - Cover your birdhouse in glue and add glitter to suit your colour scheme. Add some mirror tiles for extra sparkle.
  • Reindeer - Card embellishments are the perfect size for decorating our mini birdhouses.
  • Fabric - Cut pieces of fabric to fit the birdhouse and hot glue on. For a rustic look, we used hessian and tartan fabric.
  • Paint & Varnish - Simple single colour birdhouse painted and varnished. Use basic embellishment to add a festive feel.

Of course, you could always do something unusual and non-Christmas like one of our entries. See if you can spot which one we mean!
