Destin Garden Club makes birds happy with creative houses

Destin, Florida – The Destin Garden Club had a fun meeting at the American Legion Club where they spent the morning decorating birdhouses, and it turned out to be a big hit.

Every year, the club organizes a special workshop that brings a lot of joy to its members. They handed out plain birdhouses to everyone, encouraging them to use their imagination and decorate them in any way they wanted.

The first step was to paint the birdhouses. They could be painted in colors like red for Christmas, or white, green, brown, or blue – really, any color someone wanted to pick.

To decorate the birdhouses, the club provided a bunch of natural materials. There were sticks covered in lichen for the roofs, pieces of pinecones, green fluffy reindeer moss, and even stones and glass jewels for extra sparkle.

Two of the birdhouses were painted red for Christmas and had roofs that looked snowy. They each had a small Christmas wreath above the door. Another one was painted a shiny green, decorated with a string of colorful balls, a wreath, peppermint sticks, and little presents, topped with a big red poinsettia.

Teresa King’s birdhouse was special, with a roof of jeweled stones, painted blue, with a colorful picket fence, and decorations like butterflies, bees, seashells, and moss around it.
