this is an easy way how to make a birdhouse with very little expenses.

Step 1: Materials

Spray paint / house paint
mod-podge / sealant
cutting drill bit (Size varies (pic if you don't know what i am talking about))
(optional 1/4inch dowel & 1/4inch drill bit)
<p>I can honestly say I've never seen a birdhouse made from a gourd. I love having wildlife visits in my yard during the day. I'll have to try to make one of these and add it to my collection! How long did the complete project take? Thanks for the idea! http://www.decornmore.biz/default.asp?dept_id=30060&amp;nopopup=1</p>
This is a great instructable! I want some <a href="http://www.mightymerchandise.com/default.asp?dept_id=30060&PageNumber=3&sort=" rel="nofollow">decorative birdhouses</a> that I can put around the yard but that my two kids can help me make, and I think this fits the bill perfectly. How easy to drill the hole then let them go to town with the paint. Thanks for sharing!
Awesome idea! These are some great <a href="http://www.jettasjunk.com/default.asp?dept_id=30060" rel="nofollow">unique birdhouses</a>! And it seems pretty easy too!
Hey j@50n, I like you i'ble but if you don't seal it, doesn't it ROT?<br>i'm building a couple myself and I'm leaving them the natural color and then plan to apply some clear sealer like Thompson's Water Seal.
Looking at it I would say that it was made some time previously then you made this Instructable later? But why does you mom want it inside? L
ya i made it as a school project way before and idk y she wants it... but she does!
