Recycled Birdhouse

By Angela Roy of Mommy PR


This birdhouse was my husband’s idea. That man is a Martha Stewart sometimes. I had a box from The Honest Company, it was sort of long and skinny, on the smaller side. He took one look and decided that was going in the backyard for the birds.

What you will need:

  • A box
  • 2 kabob sticks
  • Popsicle sticks (optional)
  • Any craft extras for design (we used some pine and pine cone)
  • Glue Gun

Your total cost should be FREE.

Step 1:

Take a the box and make it into a small square. We did this by cutting the long box in half and combining the 2 sides together (one half inside the other) to make it shorter. Simply glue those 2 together.

Step 2:

Take part of the lid, fold it in half for a roof. Run a Kabob stick through the bottom of the roof, through the birdhouse to the other side. This will help secure it stays on, but as an extra caution glue it also. It should look like the letter A now. Leave the ends of the Kabobs like they are, the birds can use those to perch on, or cover them in Popsicle sticks like we did (optional).

Step 3:

This part is all optional. You can use the Popsicle sticks to line the birdhouse for decoration, or add pine cones, leaves, flowers, even glitter. Whatever you want. Then just find a place to hang it outside.

Now isn’t that the cutest recycled birdhouse?

Have a whirl at it and see what you come up with.
