 Stuff you'll need
  • Unfinished wood birdhouse
  • Hardcover, worn out childen's story book
  •  Staple Gun and Staples
  • Scissors
  • all sponge brush
  • Mod Podge
1. First, choose a children's book that is large enough to fold over the rest of the birdhouse.

2.  Remove all the pages from inside the book, and set aside; staple gun the book jacket directly onto the roof, one staple on the left and right side of the roof should hold it.

3.  Trim the pages of the book to fit along the sides of the bird house; generously use mod lodge to adhere the paper the birdhouse and then over additional glue on top, it will dry clear and create protective coating.
