Pink Shabby Birdhouse topiary

...hope your day today is sweet and your heart is filled with love.
I decided to decorate a few birdhouses, for spring. I wanted something light, airy looking and very pale. Of course pink is the perfect option for Pink Saturday!
Also a very frugal decorating project. Visit here for some great ideas! http://decormamma.blogspot.com/
I found some unfinished birdhouses at Joann's. Only a couple dollars each. We don't have Hobby Lobby in California!
Spray painted them white and then used a foam brush to paint the roof pale pink.

And Beverly our sweet hostess...we are praying for you Beverly. She's faced some rough waters lately. Visit her beautiful blog @ How Sweet the Sound.

Next I Modge Podged light pink fabric to some round boxes.
I stacked the birdhouse on top of the finished round box....and stacked these on top of white candle sticks.
Sorry I had to tilt the camera to get everything in the picture...Kind of gets a kink in your neck to look at it! Hahaha

Some more pink heart marshmallows...I bought way too many of these!

Below are some sweet little salt dough cookie looking thingamabobs!
I'm glad you came by for a visit!
