    Use washi tape to candy cane stripe your craft rolls.

  • 4 Cut a window

    Cut a small opening in the front of your roll as a window for the birdhouse.

  • 5 Sprinkle with glitter

    Apply Mod Podge inside the roll and around the cut opening. Sprinkle with glitter.

  • 6 Glue paper cone

    Glue the paper cone to the top of the roll as a roof for the birdhouse.

  • 7 Add a ribbon loop

    Use ribbon to create a 4” loop with a knot tie on the end. Thread the ribbon from inside of the house out through the roof using a piece of wire hooked on the end.

  • 8 Add snow

    Use a pallet knife to apply snow on areas of the roof and house base.
