DIY~ Decorating Small Bird Houses With Nature

My girls had some friends over the other day. I had just finished going through all my craft supplies and such and had these little bird houses set aside for a summer project to keep them entertained. I figured that since there were 4 girls and I had 4 houses, it would be a perfect time to let them break out their decorating skills.

I bought these tiny bird houses at Michael's Craft Store for $1 each, so aside from that and paint and glue costs, these are a cheap and fun craft activity for kids.

I had them go out into the yard and find things in nature that they could decorate with. They came back with mini and large pinecones, pebbles, sticks, acorns, and tree bark.

Here are the finished houses:

pinecone, nature, sticks, rocks, acorns, glitter, kids

Note- These are not intended for use by real birds. They are just the teeny houses meant for decoration. Michael's does sell larger houses that can be used for your feather friends though.


  1. What a cute craft for them to do! I love how they turned can definitely see all the creativity there :) Great idea Theresa!!

  2. The quality of your articles and contents is great.

  3. I wish I could get this organized and do a craft project at our family reunion this year.


Thanks for your comments! I appreciate every one of them :)
