Will you be my tweetheart? - DIY Valentine's Day Birdhouse!

Posted by Chaya C



Happy Valentine's Day to all of you love birds out there!  I found this super cute birdhouse project on Jo-ann's and just had to make it- or at least my version of it.

I remember back when I was in school we used to bring in little Valentine cards and slip them into each others homemade shoe boxes, well I thought that it was time to step up my Valentine's game and use a birdhouse instead!
