Alter it Challenge at Penny's

There is a new Challenge starting at Penny's today and this time around, the Challenge is to Alter something. It just so happened that I am in an altered birdhouse swap on 2Peas, so this project fit perfect. I made 5 of these little Vintage Halloween Birdhouses, I will send 4 in and get 4 different ones back. So, come Halloween I will have a little Haunted Village to set out for decoration! How cute will that be??
