Description

Handmade house – lighted fairy house or bird house (see below!). Hangs from sturdy sisal cord. House is 11" x 11" x 17".

A store bought bird house was embellished with various natural items gleaned from my yard, backyards of relatives and Higgins Lake in northern Michigan.

All were glued using hot glue to the bird house. Two coats of Valspar sealer were applied to the hardscape.

The very last step was adding various types of preserved mosses and lichens for that “lived in” look! I used preserved moss, which is genuine moss treated with something to retain its color and preserve as if it was just picked!

A genuine Michigan moral mushroom is hidden. Can you find it?

Items used are:
Maple tree bark
Ponderosa pine tree bark from Higgins Lake
Ponderosa pine dried needles
Reindeer moss
Mood moss
Spanish moss
Bun moss
Black lichen
Live pinecone
Dried pinecones / various trees
River rocks
Crushed stone
Morel mushroom
Black walnut
Acorn
Shredded cedar
Cedar oil

There is a light inside (nightlight).
The light can be removed if you wish to use as a bird house, but I would not recommend it.
Yes, it the hardscape was sealed, but I do not know how the moss would fare in the elements.
And animals would tear it up I am pretty sure. Up to you, but it will last longer if used indoors as a nightlight or decorative item than left outside. I take mine outside and plug it in to enjoy when I’m out on the deck in the evening. Then it goes inside with me!

I estimated shipping on this might be around $50, so that’s what I’ll list, but it could be less or more. If you wish to purchase, let me know and I will get a better figure for you dependent upon your location. Note---a branch w/pine cones does extend up. Also a chimney. If a small piece arrives damaged, I'd suggest gluing it back on. A small $ amount will be returned. A large piece? Show me. We will discuss. With not knowing exactly how this will ship, it's hard to be more specific.
