Default Winter Birdhouse

Last week, Trout shared a unique way to display birdhouses. It was so cute, I just had to copy/change this idea.

I have been painting a snowmen puzzle, so I thought that a 3-D snowman would be cute. One just didn't look right next to the birdhouse, so I soon created a family.

The bird house & birds are from Diana Thompson patterns. The snowmen, I created from free clipart. The ribbon, bow & presents were purchased from a craft store.

Here is my winter birdhouse:
