Make This Rock-front Birdhouse


This woodsy miniature bird house from a bag of craft rocks and some bark chunks.


Take one unfinished bird house and paint it with brown acrylic craft paint. Allow to dry. Next, glue craft rocks on the sides using E6000 adhesive. They can be set in a pattern or just random, you choose. Then glue bark pieces to the roof. To finish the project glue a few pieces of moss to the roof and your project is finished.  It is that easy!

Looking For Valentine Gift Ideas?

We have the unique Valentine gifts you are looking for, AND some traditional ones!


Our beautiful silk roses are very realistic and even have thorns. The Palmer chocolate maze Valentine cards are a fun twist on an ordinary card.

Fill a basket with yarn and top it off with a festive Valentine print bow - it is not the usual gift for your Valentine.


Our brand new Faber-Castell Creative Lettering kit, Gelatos, stencils and artist pens are sure to thrill your creative loved one.


We have a variety of Valentine themed candy in addition to our regular selection.


Pocket books are a popular option. Choose from Sudoku, Jumble Brainbusters, Crosswords and Mazematics, then top it off with a Faber-Castell pen set.


Candles are always a great choice and we have a wonderful selection for you.

We can help you choose a Valentine gift that is as unique and special as the person you are giving it to. Stop by to see us.
