Bright Birdhouse - Paint & Wood with the UnstampaBelles

Our theme this month at the UnstampaBelles challenge is Decorate something Wooden, with the optional twist of Get Messy with Paint. Our fearless leader Susan described the challenge so well:
I have a wooden spatula - can I decorate that?
I have lots of wooden embellies - can I use them?
What about wooden buttons?
Can I use a twig from a tree?
What about an old box that needs rejuvenating?
Perhaps I can build a box or frame or similar from scratch?
The answer to all these questions is YES

The TWIST is to use paint
Does the paint have to go on the wood?
Do I have to use paint on everything?
Will I necessarily have to use a paintbrush?
The answer to these questions is NO!

You need to follow the twist to be considered as the DT Favorite, but you only have to follow main theme to win our prize. And you don't want to miss out on this great prize! You can make whatever you like without using any stamps.

I painted the base of this wooden birdhouse a couple of years ago, but never finished the project.

I used a rubber stencil (Recollections) to add the patterns. I painted the wood veneer pieces with chartreuse or glittery black paint, and added a layer of glow-in-the-dark paint. I added glow-in-the-dark glitter to some of the pieces. I made the beads with neon easy-bake clay & decorated them with the same stencil.
