How to Make It

We used a Single Small Paper Mache BIrdhouse or Bird Box but you can use any size bird box you like.

Preparation for all Rainbow Unicorn birdhouse craft ideas: 

  1. Use white acrylic paint to apply a base coat to your wooden or paper mache birdhouse. Leave to dry.
Rainbow Unicorn Paint & Sticker bird boxes:
  1. Apply colour to the bird house using acrylic paint. You may need more than one coat but always leave to dry between applications. 
  2. When dry apply any accessories, we used pom poms, stickers and tissue paper, but you can use whatever you like!
 Easy tissue paper flowers:
  1. Prepare your birdhouse with a basecoat of white paint and leave to dry. 
  2. Paint using a colour of your choice and leave to dry.
  3. Pick what tissue paper colour you would like to use and tear off small rough squares.
  4. Roll the tissue paper into a messy ball! Glue to your painted birdhouse to create a flowery effect. We addedd a few leaves cut from green tissue paper too.
