I made a birdhouse for my garden! I’m really pleased with how it turned out in the end. I’d seen a picture of something similar on Pinterest that had been for sale on Etsy for $45! The only similarity in the end is the cork covering but I think it works really well. The body of the house is made from lolly sticks criss-crossed and glued together. The base and door way is plywood and the perch & porch uprights are dowel rods cut to size. The roof was a particular challenge as a) it wasn’t very straight and b) the cork slices weren’t exactly the same thickness….. but it all came together with a bit of patience and (quite) a bit of glue.
I’m delighted and I can’t wait to get it hung up in the garden 🙂
