Craft Birdhouses

contest winner icon

This is a craft that my mother-in-law and I made. It uses empty seed packets. Pick 6 of your favorite images for the project. I prefer to use 2 of the same for the roof. We hot glued the packages to a block of Styrofoam. We used 2 packages for the roof. Carefully open the lids to act as an overhang. You can also use a piece of cardboard for the roof. We also included moss for the space between the roof and sides. For the ledge for the front of the birdhouse, look for items in your garden for the mushroom birds to sit on. Ours used a cinnamon stick. Decorate the top of the birdhouse with snippets of floral items. Enjoy!

Very, very cute!! I love the seed packets pictures. This is a good craft for seniors and children at school, Girl Scouts or Sunday School classes. Is this your original idea? You should sumbit it to Birds and Blooms magazine. It's is a real charming idea!!

P.S. If anyone is going to put outside; remember to put a water-proof clear coat on them 1st! Wouldn't want them to fall apart!
