The "house" is an empty soda can, making it the perfect size for tiny wrens that enjoy close quarters. The pop top makes a great natural perch and larger birds or predators can't get through the 1 inch "doorway" to pester the tiny tweeters.
Using a spray adhesive, bark and natural moss are glued to the entire surface of the can to provide insulation and camouflage.
The finished wren house is finally attached to a tree limb using ZIP TIES.
No lumber or nails were used, making this finished birdhouse eco and tree friendly.
This project is FUN and easy-peasy! Let's get started!
