This was such a fun project! The arts and crafts group at church made Easter/Springtime mosaic birdhouses for all the tables in the fellowship hall. Our teacher, Cherie, is a fantastic mosaic glass artist as well as a great teacher! You can buy these little wood birdhouses at most arts and crafts stores, such as JoAnn’s or Michael’s. A lot of my birdhouse is covered with tempered glass. This is clear tempered glass that has been shattered and then small chunks or pieces of glass are glued onto the birdhouse – which has first been painted in bright colors. Wherever the tempered glass is applied the color shows through. You can even add glitter to the paint. On one of my birdhouse projects I painted flowers and grass, but once you apply the tempered glass most of the defined flowers and grass is obscured (so don’t go crazy painting a great picture if you are going to cover with TG. There needs to be a little space for the grout between the pieces of glass, stones, jewelry (whatever you are applying). The grout holds everything together nice and tight! After the excess grout is all cleaned off, more embellishments can be added, such as my bird and shells around the roof.
