Got Milk?

Hello Everyone! I'm back from my break and I feel recharged! Thanks for your well wishes, I missed you gals, too.

This week, let's turn these empty milk cartons from
blah to TADA!

The first step is to wash the blah cartons with dish soap & water.
Allow to dry thoroughly.

Once dry, it's time to decorate!

TADA! A cute little bird house!

It's dressed up with scrap gift wrap, an old box for the roof, a real twig for the perch & stickers for the peephole window. My feathered friend, I got from Chinatown (you can get them at the nearest craft store).

Use it to add some cheer to a blank wall.

Or for a more utilitarian purpose, make a hole at the back using
a box cutter to stash your pens & pencils in.

Have a great day!
