Whimsical Coffee Can Birdhouse
The Coffee-Can Birdhouse
Have you checked out the prices on bird houses lately? They can really put a dent in your pocket book if you’re looking for just the right one. I however have found the perfect project to solve that problem for you. There is nothing that I love more than cheap, easy and colorful and this coffee can birdhouse is about as cheap, easy and colorful as it gets. Anyone who has ever visited my garden knows that there is nothing that I adore more than whimsical. Fairies, gnomes, colorful dragonflies and lizards will always have a place in my heart and my garden.
The coffee-can birdhouse is simple to build, costs under $10 to make. It will make a wonderful addition to any garden. I know it has made one in mine. Happy Birding!
