Tweetin' Sweet Bottle Birdhouse






What could be more perfect than a birdhouse for May day? It's fun, fast, and easy to make too. Just take a juice bottle (like juicy juice), cut a large hole in the front for birds to get in through, and another hole for  a thin dowel. It will serve as a perch inside and outside the birdhouse. Then, paint it how you want it, and once it dries, coat it with a water-glue solution, which will (hopefully) waterproof it and keep the paint safe from cracking and running. Once the first coat dries, it may be a good idea to apply a second coat, just to be safe. Fill with birdseed, hang from a string, and watch the birds come flying!
