Milk carton bird house

Milk carton bird house

You will be amazed how a bird house can be made with few materials.

Material:

You will need the following craft materials:

  • An empty milk carton (q,5 litre)
  • Yellow paint (or another colour which you prefer)
  • Brown foam
  • Scissors
  • Round wooden stick (approx. 0.5 cm diameter and 10cm long)
  • Wire

Craft instructions:

  1. Take the empty milk carton and wash it out. Leave it to dry.

  2. You can now paint the carton with yellow paint (or your chosen colour).

  3. The foam serves as a roof. You can make the eaves of a roof with this and glue it to the milk carton leaving some space and the pointed edge.

  4. Cut a door into the front of the carton.

  5. Underneath the door, you can now cut a hole at the size of the wooden stick (back and front). You can now push the stick through as a perch for the birds.

  6. Apply a piece of wire to the top to hang the bird house up.

You now have a bird house in a jiffy and the first feathered guests can pay a visit!
