Bright & Beautiful Citrus Assortment

Hey Y'all,

Today I am sharing a little birdhouse I made with the New Ribbon Club Assortment for June - Citrus colors from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  These ribbons are just stunning! Love the bright colors in this monthly assortment they are such happy colors. These ribbons are must have for any of your summer projects this year. :D

Here is my DT project  -

Here is the front of my Birdhouse.

For this project I used a wooden birdhouse I picked up from JoAnn's. 
I removed the bottom portion of the birdhouse before I painted the  wooden circle 
with Testors craft paint (Turqouise Matte, Fluorescent paints - orange and green) 
Once the bottom dried I used the Yellow Maize Taffeta Ribbon to create rosette 
on the bottom portion of the house and adhered the house to the rosette with the glue gun.

One the mid-section of the house I used this fun Sheer Citrus Dots Ribbon. Such a fun ribbon I couldn't resist using it. :D I created a little ruffle to the edge of the birdhouse. I think it turned out pretty cute. Looks like a little curtain. 

I added some vines around the house with some leaves I had in my stash and then added some Sweetheart Blossoms flowers all around with a couple birds. 
Here is the Right side 

Left side of the birdhouse. In this photo I wanted to share 
how the pretty ribbons really coordinate well with the 
Sweetheart Blossom flowers. 

Here is the backside of the birdhouse. It just looks so cute like this lil'guy 
is nesting in the flowers. 

For the top it was a bit tricky. I had snip off a bit of the top and dig into the roof so I could stick ribbons inside. Once I got the ribbons inside and made them look like they were falling around the roof I added my bow on top. I used Sheer Citrus Dots Ribbon., Maize Honeycomb Print on Satin RibbonCitrus Chervon Striped Grosgrain RibbonCrosshatch on Tangerine Satin Ribbon.
