Feb 23, 2022 06:20 AM

Spring is almost here, so why don’t we prepare some homes for those little birds. Let’s DIY some bird houses that are very easy to make. You can invite your kids to help out by painting the roofs, doors and just having fun. These bird houses will be great and will make your house full of different types of birds. I hope you enjoy the process and find it easy!

Materials needed:

  • 3 boards of 6′ x 8″ cedar fence board (dog eared top is ok)
  • 1 – 1/2″ wooden dowel
  • 1 roll 10″ aluminum flashing
  • Snips for cutting metal
  • wood glue
  • 1″ or bigger brad nails/or an Arrow electric brad nailer
