Step 1. Gather your materials.
Mix turquoise and white to make “Robin’s Egg Blue”. Paint the front of the birdhouse.
Paint the roof white.
Paint the bottom of the birdhouse green. Paint some grass onto the front and sides.
Use tape to create guides to paint stripes. Cut the pieces into different widths and then paint in the blank spaces with yellow.
Repeat on both sides and paint the front and back edges of the roof yellow.
Paint 2 skinny sticks white.
Paint 8 mini clothespins white.
Clip the 8 mini clothespins onto one of the painted skinny sticks, spread evenly apart. Then, glue the other skinny stick onto the back clip in the middle of the clothespin.
Glue the fence to the base of the front of the birdhouse.
Glue 2 mini cupcake liners together, then cut 4 evenly spread slits about half way to the middle.
Fold every other corner into the middle and glue to secure. Repeat Steps 10 & 11 to create a second pinwheel.
Glue a silver bead into the center of each pinwheel.
Glue the pinwheels to mini wood sticks. Cut one shorter than the other and glue to the base of the birdhouse, behind the fence.
