Picture of See Thru Pallet Birdhouse

This is a See Thru Birdhouse I made with up-cycled pallets and an old CD case. After completion, you'll have a sweet birdhouse that will let you see the activity inside!

I built this birdhouse without glue, because I read it can take up to a year for birds to move in due to the smell, and I just didn't want to wait that long!

Here's what you'll need:

-pallet planks
-hole saw kit

Step 1: Make your window

Remove the cover from an old CD case. CAREFULLY bend the edges forward. There will be a quick SNAP, and hopefully you'll have a clean break (It took me two tries). Sand down edges if necessary.

Next, use a drill to make a small hole in each corner.

Doesn't the house dangle around on windy/stormy days?

It totally did. I secured it elseware when I realized that.

Cool! I love the shape, too, it's adorable!
