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
-saw
-drill
-hole saw kit
-hammer
-nails
-ruler
-pen

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.

It's been a while now. What sorts of birds have you seen?
<p>The birdhouse got demolished by our indoor/outdoor cat... so there must have been some kind of activity, but I'm not sure. I didn't try again, because I got the sense that I'd be luring unsuspecting birds to their doom.</p>
took a while due to wet weather but hope sis likes
<p>Groovy!</p>
<p>Doesn't the house dangle around on windy/stormy days?</p>
<p>It totally did. I secured it elseware when I realized that.</p>
<p>Cool! I love the shape, too, it's adorable! </p>
<p>Thanks!</p>
<p>Too cool! Can't wait to see pics of birds nesting</p>
<p>I'll post 'em as soon as it happens!</p>
