Itty Bitty Eiffels

Wow does time fly when you are trying to burn the candle at both ends!
I did finally manage to get a "craft" item done though for which I am thrilled...
I started with these cute little Eiffel tower birdhouses that I found on sale at Michael's for $1.79 each!

After sanding and priming them I decided to wallpaper the flat surfaces and paint the remaining wood edges with pastel, metallic paint in pink, blue and platinum.
I also replaced the wood tops with crystals to which I added a bouquet of small posies. 

The wallpaper was downloaded from the The Graphic's Fairy blog, of course, (isn't she just amazing) and was applied with Mod Podge. 
I am hoping to sell them at the craft show I am doing the first week of December, fingers crossed! Or I may list them in my Etsy store (I have so little patience)!

If you noticed the wallpapered, green box the Eiffels are sitting on, that is my next project and by the end of the week I should have at least one of my mini shelf units complete and ready to show! Stay tuned!
I hope everyone is well and having a great beginning to the Fall season!

Love ya ....
