Tiny Town Holiday Birdhouses
• Several small wooden bird houses (widely available at home, craft or hardware stores)
• Semi-gloss or gloss interior latex paint in the colors of your choice
• Scrap pine boards (to practice your etching/engraving technique)
• A string of holiday lights (either interior or exterior style)
• Carpenter's pencil
Begin by sketching the pattern you plan to engrave on the bird house with a pencil.
Etch the design with the accessory best suited to the type of line or texture you want to achieve. We used a 106 Engraving Cutter, which works well for detailed work in softer woods.
Tip: You may want to have a scrap piece of painted pine board handy as a test piece to hone your skills prior to working on the actual bird house.
Attach your Dremel rotary tool to the Dremel Workstation ™ to assist in drilling a hole into the back of each bird house. Then, thread holiday lights through the hole into the bird house to give the houses the perfect holiday ambiance!
