My latest ding ding project was to capatilize on the big beautiful birch tree in my front yard and make a bird house. But not just any bird house, the most popular bird house on the block. The cats can watch the birds and the birds can chow down, it is a win win.
So it might not be an actual house, really more like a feeder. And it was super easy to make, once I did the steps in the correct order. First get a bowl shaped object. I used the bottom of a two-liter bottle. then poke holes in the sides to hang the string.
Then fashion a perch on the bottom. You could really use anything- a chopstick, a popsicle stick, a furniture shim. I used part of a plastic poster frame. I glued it on with my favorite, Gorilla Glue.
Follow-up with a nice coating of spray paint in your favorite color. I did white because I wanted something creamy and pretty to look at. And because that was the can in Mrs.’s stash that was most full.
After I spray painted and let dry, I threaded yarn through the holes, hung it on the tree and filled it with birdseed. It hasn’t seen much action yet, but I am confident, that since I built it, they will come.
