Make Your Own Birdhouse!

Mar 30, 2023 ● By The Hood Magazine

Sometimes the most unexpected materials make the best outcome. The perfect example? Our homemade bird houses make from pvc pipes. 

Yes, you read that right!

Take a walk down your local hardware store's plumbing aisle and you'll be able to create your own birdhouse for the upcoming summer months!

You can find PVC pipes or sewer pipes that are the perfect size. With a little help from an adult with some power tools to create a couple holes, the remainder of the project is great for all ages! 

Use a PVC cap for the top. Hot glue a plastic planter to the bottom to create a shallow food dish! A small dowel works perfect for a bird perch!

 Use paint or paint markers to add some special details. Add a hook or heavy-duty string and find the perfect spot to hang up outside!
