Glue Dots 4th of July Craft Project: Patriotic Bird House

America is another name for opportunity.
Our whole history appears like a last effort of 
divine providence on behalf of the human race.  
-Ralph Waldo Emerson

What screams America more than the colors red, white and blue? If you are searching for a little 4th of July craft project, look no further! Turn a ready-to-finish bird house into a patriotic decoration by following the simple steps below.


  • Craft Glue Dots®
  • wood bird house
  • 7 wood stars
  • small decorative bird
  • acrylic paint (red, white, blue, yellow)
  • paint brushes
  • emery board

1. Lightly sand the bird house with an emery board.

2. Paint the bird house: white for the base, red and white stripes on roof, blue for the main part of the house, and red on the perch.

3. Paint both sides of the stars yellow.

4. After the paint dries, use Craft Glue Dots® to adhere the stars to the front of the roof.

5. Pull the clip out of the bird (if there is one) and attach bird to the perch with a Craft Glue Dot®.

Note: Apply 2-3 coats of paint for each color and allow dry time in between coats.
