An easy birdhouse craft is a fun and simple way to celebrate summer. Learn how to make a Birdhouse Fairy Cottage from EcoHeidi Borchers that you can display in your garden all season long. Turn a plain, wooden piece into a magical, mystical cottage.
Begin by tracing a large door shape on the front of your pre-fabricated birdhouse. Use pliers to cut the wood and pull out the pieces. Cut away any excess with a craft knife. Glue craft sticks to the roof of the birdhouse to create a more pronounced look. Cut more glue sticks to the desired size and use the to cover the front of the house. This is how you will cover up any rough edges you may have caused when cutting the wood to make the door. Use black and white paint to create a weathered wooden look and add moss to the roof. You can also glue silk flowers to the top for a "lost in the woods" feel.
