mickey birdhouse

This adorable mouse-house is actually for the birds. Follow this kit’s simple instructions to glue it together, then we’ll show you how to add colorful spots of paint to finish. Your neighborhood birds will appreciate the cool, new hangout!
Step 1
First, use the instructions that come with the kit to build the wood birdhouse. Use Elmer's® Glue-All® to glue the birdhouse’s parts together. Then, let the birdhouse dry completely before you begin painting. 
Step 2
Paint the birdhouse black, and let that dry, too. 
Step 3
Pour a little white, yellow and red paint onto a paper plate. Make sure to keep each color in a separate area of the plate. 
Step 4
Dip a foam Spouncer™ into one of the paint colors. Lightly dab the bottom of the sponge onto a clean section of the paper plate – this allows you to make sure the paint is spread evenly. Next, press the Spouncer™ onto the surface of the birdhouse, then twist and pull straight up to make an even dot. Repeat this step with all three colors to add spots randomly all over the birdhouse. Let the paint spots dry before you hang your birdhouse.
 
TIP: As you change colors, also change the Spouncer™ sizes, so that your dots are different sizes, as well as different colors.
