Upcycled Birdhouse DIY Christmas Village

These were leftover birdhouses from our wedding centerpieces. I tried to make them into Christmas village houses. I just used cardboard/cardstock and kept them all white. Next year I can easily paint them different colors to match a new theme.  I have a couple other houses I can makeover next year and truly make it a village (with more trees too). I'd like to actually cut out the doors instead of cardboard too. I think that'll look best but for now this is what I did.

The macrame candle jar cover took me a bit but now I know really well how to do square and diagonal half hitch knots. I used this tutorial on youtube: DIY Macramé Jar Cover | Boho Candle Holder Tutorial by Macrame School

Pretty simple transformation with these birdhouses. I also think adding some paper string lights would be cute added detail.

I had these 4 inch square frames and filled them with some seasonal phrases I put together in illustrator and printed out. The fonts I used are Nightcall for the script and Bush Market regular for the "and".

Happy holiday crafting!
