Project Instructions

Step: 1

Seal your birdhouse with a dark rust color.

Step: 2

Cover top with Ivy Leaf Wallies®. When wrapping Wallies® around an edge just wet the back, put them on and wrap around the corner. Hold in position for 5 seconds or so to make sure the paste is adhering.

Step: 3

Wrap Picket Fence Wallies® around the bottom edge.

Step: 4

Put on a few Hummingbird Wallies®.

Step: 5

Make a cute little “Vacancy” sign by painting a piece of cardboard, let dry and write the word vacancy in the center. Glue a small piece of twin for a hanger and “hang” on the birdhouse with a dot of glue.


Because Wallies® are made from vinyl coated paper, we don't recommend that they be used for decorating your outside birdhouses. They are fine on covered porches though!
