Did This for the Halloween Advent Swap.
Started as one of those $1 papermache birdhouses from craft stores (I bought it for .25 at a thrift store years ago). The house is covered with paper clay. The legs are paper clay over wire. The book is a kids board book covered paper and painted with gold. Embellished with a string of autumn leaves, miniature gravestones & Tim Holtz bones & eyeball.
