Listening and watching the birds is a favourite pastime for many. In fact, you might find yourself enjoying their company so much as to decide to add a birdhouse in your yard. Unfortunately, pre-made birdhouses can get quite expensive. So, we have decided to share some ideas for simple bird homes that will make your chirping friends happy. These easy bird DIY homes will save you a few dollars and are fun to make. You don’t need a birdhouse drawing for these, you will only need your imagination and some old things you have at home.

How to make a bird house of recycled plastic bottle

 

Just take a used plastic water bottle and cut out a big enough hole to serve as an entrance. You can put a plastic roof or just leave the top of the bottle as is. Use your imagination to come up with fun decoration for the bottle.

 

Kettle Birdhouse
